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|
|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.
