The BD LSRFortessa™ SORP analyzing flow cytometer is a high-end, user-friendly flow cytometer with 5 excitation lasers and 24 detection parameters (matching our BD Influx’s configuration). Optimised for both biomedical and environmental research, this cytometer offers an optional High Throughput Sampling system, and small particle detection.
The Inveon μCT uses multiple axial x-rays of the animal to generate cross-sectional information or 3-dimensional reconstructions of the animal or parts of the animal.The μPET uses an LSO detector for fast scintillation decay time, high light output and effective atomic number.
The BD FACS Jazz™ II Cell Sorter is equipped with 2 excitation lasers (blue 488nm and red 642nm) and has a flexible detection configuration detecting up to 8 parameters (6 fluorescence channels, forward scatter and side scatter).
BD FACSCanto™ II is equipped with three excitation lasers wavelengths (405nm, 488nm and 640 nm). The Canto II cant detect up to 10 fluorescent parameters with 2 scatter options and is capable of analyzing samples between 100 and 12,000 cells per second. Software is FACS™ Diva generating standard FCS3.0 files for third party software analysis packages.
The 3i VIVO microscope is ideally suited for intravital imaging. Its large stable stage can easily accommodate sizable tissue samples along with clamps and manipulators to aid stabilization. Equipped with a spinning disk unit for high speed optical sectioning, paired with an image intensifier, this system can achieve very high frame rates making the most of every photon. Additionally, a pulsed 532nm ablation laser is available for targeted tissue damage.
The EMU specimen preparation suite includes equipment designed for specimen preparation for microscopy, in addition to basic lab equipment. For training or access to any of these pieces of equipment, please speak to EMU staff.
