BD FACSAria™ IIIu

The BD FACSAria™ IIIu cell sorter is equipped with five excitation lasers (violet 405nm, yellow/green 561nm, red 642nm and blue 488nm OR true-blue 445nm) and can detect up to 17 parameters (15 fluorescence channels plus forward scatter and side scatter). 

This high-end cell sorter offers 4 nozzle sizes (70um, 85um, 100um and 130um) and is available for user DIY sorting at a reduced rate of $60 per hour (extra training is required). It is housed in a class II C.A.S™ biosafety cabinet (PC2).

It can simultaneously sort 1-4 populations into a variety of tube sizes, as well as single/multiple cell deposition onto a variety of plate/slide types. This instrument is equipped with an optional true-blue 445nm laser (co-linear with the blue 488nm laser), which is optimal for environmental applications.

This cell sorter runs FACS Diva™ 7 software, generating FCS3.0 files.
