BD FACSAria III flow cytometer/cell sorter


The BD FACSAria flow cytometer/cell sorter is equipped with two lasers (Sapphire 488-50 Blue, COHR Cube 640-100 Red) to enable the detection of a variety of fluorochromes and fluorescent proteins. The optical configuration of this instrument is listed in the table below.

Laser (Excitation) Detector (Emission) Fluorochrome examples
Blue, 488 nm 780/60 PE-Cy7
710/50 PE-Cy5, PerCP, PerCP-Cy5.5
575/25 PE, PI
530/30 FITC, Alexa Fluor 488, GFP
Red, 640 nm 780/60 APC-Cy7, APC-H7
670/30 APC, Alexa Fluor 647


In addition to flow cytometric analysis, the FACSAria can also perform 2-way, 4-way, and 96-well plate cell sorting.
