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.
