Cell Sorter Reviews

December 3, 2014 at 1:21 pm Leave a comment

Earlier this week,  The Scientist reviewed and compared five different cell sorters. The comparison included price, size, number of lasers, colour detection and sample format. Bio-Rad Laboratories S3 Cell Sorter was the first to be reviewed and was given accolades for its ease of use, user friendly software and the novel internal fluidics system. The reviewer interviewed professor Stacy Blaine from SUNY Downstate Medical who  said that the system, which requires very little training, enabled her to leave others to use the sorter unsupervised. This gave her the freedom to do other work in the time that it would normally take to train new users on the system.
