Cell sorting and flow cytometry can be performed by users trained specifically on the Aria III (BD Biosciences) fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS). Sorts can be optimized for purity, yield or single cell modes. The Aria III is equipped with blue (488 nm), green (561 nm), red (633 nm) and violet (405 nm) lasers with 11 detectors that can measure up to 10 colors simultaneously. The hourly rental rate includes sheath fluid, calibration (CS&T) beads, Accudrop beads and other standard solvents used to run and maintain the FACS.
Please Note: Users are not allowed to run un-fixed human or primate cells (primary or cultured) as the Aria III instrument is not in a BSL2+ facility.
