Description

The BD FACSAria II cell sorter is a three-laser (blue 488 nm, red 633 nm, Near UV 375 nm) flow cytometer used for analysing particles (animal cells, bacteria, synthetic bacteria) labelled with fluorescent markers and sorting them according to up to nine parameters. It enables the retrieval of both individual cells and large quantities of particles. The laboratory also houses basic equipment for running the cytometer and an aseptic laminar flow cabinet. Registered users with appropriate training or experience may run the machine independently and manage their reservations on an online calendar. Support and training is available as resources allow.
