    Kindly be noted that ONLY Regular or Experienced user of Aria I/SORP cell sorter who fulfills either one of the pre-requisites stated below is eligible for equipment usage due to the complicated operation of this cell sorting system:

    a. Having large sample size which takes at least 4 hours to complete on Aria I/SORP cell sorter.
    b. Neither Aria I nor Aria SORP can fulfill their experimental requirement.

    Training of BD InfluxTM Cell Sorting system will be held once per month based on first-come-first-serve principle. ONLY the training application of those who meet the prerequisite(s) stated above will be confirmed.

ACEA NovoCyte Quanteon:

  • With 4 lasers, 25 colors, and 25 independent, highly sensitive detectors, the new NovoCyte Quanteon easily accommodates the large, multi-color panels found in today's highly progressive flow cytometry laboratories. Yet, with a number of key features such as auto compensation, as well as fixed and flexible signal collection options, the system is remarkably easy to set up for users of all levels and experience.
  • The NovoSampler Q, which can be integrated into different laboratory automation platforms, efficiently processes both FACS tubes (using a 40-tube rack) and 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well plates. The intuitive and industry leading NovoExpress software has been further advanced, providing an exceptional user experience in data acquisition, analysis and reporting.
  • Detailed optical configuration
