we would like to invite you to a seminar introducing a flow cytometer specially developed for large sample types, e.g. Zebrafish and Drosophila embryos, C. elegans, plant seeds and seedlings, large cell clusters and so on.
The seminar will take place on August 19, 2019 in the ground floor seminar room of Lab building east (I06.EG.018), starting at 3pm.
Union Biometrica extends the utility of flow cytometry to samples that are too large or too fragile for traditional flow instruments. This technology provides a method for analysis and dispensing, increasing throughput and replacing manual sorting. The BioSorter™ flow cytometer is designed to provide the flexibility for working with samples ranging in sizes from 1 to 1500 microns. This very broad range of sizes includes many model organisms, like C.elegans, Drosophila and Zebrafish as well as fragile cell types and large cell clusters.
We present examples of sample types especially suited to the BioSorter instrument. These samples can be analyzed and dispensed intact and viable owing to the low sample pressures, low shear forces and gentle sorting mechanism. Union Biometrica has developed an autosampler, LP Sampler™ that automatically loads samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting.
