Flow cytometers at CFFC 

CFFC feature six cytometers with very different setup.

   

FACS Calibur

The FACS Calibur is the basic flowcytometer that new users should start at.

   

FACS LSR-II

The LSR-II offers more parameters to analyze, a natural next choice when the analysis become more advanced.

   

Fortessa (3 laser)

The LSRFortessa 3 laser offers more parameters to analyze your cells, the choice when the analyses become more advanced. The instrument can measure 14 colors plus FSC and SSC.

CytoFLEX S (4 laser)

The CytoFLEX S 4 laser system offers a wide range of fluorescence for detection in 13 different colors plus FSC and SSC. The instrument has 7-decade display on all parameters.

Fortessa (5 laser)

The LSRFortessa 5 laser offers even more parameters to analyze your cells, the choice when the analyses become more advanced. The instrument can measure 18 colors plus FSC and SSC.

 

FACSVerse

The FACSVerse is in a 3 laser version, with 8 colors to analyze and no HTS loader yet.
The instrument comes with a new PC-based software (BD FACSuite™ ) .
If interested, read more about the instrument.

ImageStream Mk II

The ImageStream instrument offers the combination of flow cytometry and simple microscopy. It creates new experimental capabilities where you can combine classical flow cytometry with morphological information, like position of dye, co-localization of markers etc. If interested, read more about the instrument.
