BD FACSAria SORP
Flow Cytometry Equipment
The BD FACSAriaTM SORP Cell Sorter is equipped with five lasers (Ultra-Violet 355nm, Violet 405nm, Blue 488nm, Yellow-Green 561nm and Red 640nm) which enables the detection of up to 18 fluorochromes. A gel coupled quartz cuvette flow cell in true fixed alignment with the laser, combined with trigon and octagon detection systems provide increased sensitivity and resolution.
A choice of nozzles (70, 86, 100 and 130 μm) allows optimization to a wide range of particle sizes. It is equipped with a versatile sort collection chamber that allows users to sort into up to 4-way 1.5- or 5-mL tubes, up to 2-way 15 mL tubes, as well as the ACDU unit which allows users to sort into 6-, 24-, 96-, 384-well plate or any custom collection device. Cooling and heating for sort collection are available.
Forward and side scatter properties allow for a minimum detectable particle size of 0.5 μm. The maximum data acquisition rate is 70,000 events/second and maximum sorting rate can go up to 7,000 events/second (at 28kHz). We recommend a minimum sample volume of 500 μL.
