The BD Influx™ cell sorter is equipped with five excitation lasers (ultraviolet 355nm, violet 405nm, blue 488nm, yellow/green 561nm and red 642nm) and has a flexible detection configuration with a number of filter set options, detecting up to 24 parameters (21 fluorescence channels, two forward scatter channels and one side scatter).
This high-end cell sorter offers 4 nozzle sizes (70um, 86um, 100um and 140um) and is capable of sorting speeds of up to 70 000 particles/second. It can simultaneously sort 1-6 populations into a variety of tube sizes, as well as single/multiple cell deposition onto a variety of plate/slide types. The instrument also has a small particle detection option, with resolution threshold at 100nm. It is housed in a class II C.A.S™ biosafety cabinet (PC2).
This cell sorter runs FACS Sortware™ software, generating FCS3.0 files.
