Cell Sorting Equipment

Becton Dickinson FACS-VantageSE/DiVa cell sorter

Equipped with three lasers, one UV-capable.  Up to 12-color detection.  Four streams (independent populations) can be sorted simultaneously.  Sorting is monitored by two CCD video cameras, facilitating sorts lasting for extended periods (>1 hour).  Sterile sorting is routinely provided at no extra charge.  The UV laser facilitates measurement of Ca++ flux, using the calcium sensitive reporter, Indo-1.

Becton Dickinson LSR-II flow analyzer

Equipped with three lasers, providing up to 10-color analysis.  High-throughput automated sampler pemits unattended analysis of samples in microtiter plates

Becton Dickinson FACScan flow analyzer

3 color/single laser instrument, particularly suited for DNA cell cycle analysis and simple fluorescence analysis.

Bay Biosciences JSAN benchtop sorter

Equipped with four lasers, including 355nm UV, enabling Ca++ flux measurements.  Up to 8-color detection and two stream sorting.  Flow-cell design, providing increased stability.
