The BD FACSAria
is a 13 color 15-parameter custom-made high-speed digital bench-top cell sorter equipped with four adjustable excitation lasers (100 mW Blue, 50 mW 561nm Green, 100 mW Red and 100 mW violet). The instrument is able to perform two- and four-way aseptic sorting for a variety of tube sizes as well as sorting into multi-well plates. The instrument uses four different nozzle sizes (90μm, 100μm and 130μm) to sort a variety of cell sizes. The instrument is also equipped with an aerosol management option (AMO) to control the risk of biohazard exposure by creating a negative laminar-flow pressure in the sort chamber.
