    Equipments Details


    • 405nm, 488nm, and 640nm excitation lasers;
    • 100-µm nozzle only;
    • 34,000 drops per second, max acquisition rate is 40,000 events per second;
    • Gel-coupled cuvette with fixed laser alignment;
    • BD FACSChorus™ software;
    • Housed in a specifically designed Baker Type A2 biosafety cabinet conforming to the National Sanitation Foundation International Standard 49, and European Standard 12469.
    • Sort collection:
    1. Tube sorting: 1.5-, 2.0- and 5.0-mL tubes
    2. Plate sorting: 6-, 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-well plates, 96-well PCR tray, microscope slide
    3. Index Sorting: correlation of flow cytometry parameters of sorted events with the X and Y coordinates of the sort collection device. Post-sorting results can be precisely traced back to the flow characteristics of the specific cell or combinations of cells sorted.
