Simplifying Cell Sorting

November 26, 2012 at 2:16 pm Leave a comment

Bio-Rad Laboratories and Propel Labs, a biotechnology instrumentation company whose principals helped to develop the MoFlo cell sorter and the CyAn ADP Analyzer, have partnered to bring researchers the new evolution in cell sorting, the S3 cell sorter. The S3 cell sorter is an automated benchtop cell sorter that contains one to two lasers and up to four fluorescent detectors, along with forward and side scatter detectors. It uses state-of-the-art ProDrop™ technology for automation of drop delay calculation and droplet break off monitoring, thereby simplifying one of the most complex aspects of cell sorting. Without compromising performance and sensitivity, this affordable cell sorter provides exceptional sort purity and yield results. This system is ideal for sorting cells expressing fluorescent proteins like GFP or cells labeled with fluorescent markers.
