Flow Cytometers

FACS

There are 4 cell sorters in the facility:

Excitation Wavelengths

  1. 488,633
  2. 407,488,633
  3. ?
  4. ?

There FACS-Aria machines (2 of the 4) have a system for creating the droplet which allows for smaller cells (i.e. bacteria) to be resolved. The MOFLO machines are not as capable in this regard.
