Three BD FACS Canto II  analyzers

The Canto is an easy-to-use benchtop analyzer, equipped with three lasers and cappable of detecting up to 8 colours simultaneously. The 488nm, 635nm and 405 nm excitation wavelength and the accompaning filter settings for detection covermost of the routine applications in flow cytometry. Users are trained on the analysers and can perform their experiments without the assistance of an operator.    Configuration Cantos

LSR Fortessa analyser

The LSR Fortessa is equipped with five laserlines for excitation (355nm, 405nm, 488nm, 561nm, 640nm) and 18 photomultipliers for simultaneous detection of fluorescence. Users can now take full advantage of new fluorochromes and increased sensitivity/decreased spectral overlap of PE conjugates for immunophenotyping. Moreover the configuration of the ananlyser enables nearly the complete spectrum of variants of fluorescent proteins, to monitorgene expression or to analyse reporter cell lines.

BD FACS Aria III high-speed cell sorter

The BD FACS Aria cell sorter is similar in its configuration to the LSR Fortessa. What you see on the LSR Fortessa can therefore usually be physically separated on the FACS Aria. Sterile cell sorting can be performed for single cells on all sizes of plates or microscope slides as well as sorting four populations simultaneously. Configuration Aria

BD Influx high-speed cell sorter

The BD Influx™ cell sorter is a flexible flow cytometry platform that easily adapts to a researcher’s application or requirements. The Influx is a high speed cell sorter, with four lasers for excitation, (405nm, 488nm, 561nm, 640nm) and 16 photomultipliers to address the needs of current multicolor experiments. Four different nozzle sizes (70, 85, 100 and 130μm) allow an adequate choice for a variety of cell types and sizes and reduce shear stress, thereby increasing cell viability. Configuration Influx

Luminex 200

The Luminex® 200™ System is a flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry.

The system enables you to multiplex (simultaneously measure) up to 100 analytes in a single microplate well, using very small samples.  The system delivers fast and cost-effective bioassay results on many assay formats including nucleic acid assays, receptor-ligand assays, immunoassays, and enzymatic assays.
