The BD FACSAria cell sorter sets a new standard for high- performance flow cytometry. Based on an entirely new design in instrumentation, the BD FACSAria instrument is the first benchtop sorter that incorporates a fixed-alignment cuvette flow cell that can detect up to 13 colors, for a total of 15 parameters. The cuvette flow cell allows for up to three air- cooled or solid state lasers at 488 nm, 633 nm, and 405 nm. Faster digital electronics allow for acquisition rates of up to 70,000 events per second. High-performance sorting is easy to set up, perform, and monitor with built-in BD FACSTM Accudrop technology and sort monitoring features within the software.
