If you need an approachable instrument for sorting multiple populations to generate high quality material for downstream assays, the CytoFLEX SRT benchtop cell sorter is quick to learn and easy to operate. This extension of the CytoFLEX platform is built on the same optical features as the flow cytometer, but equally important, it continues to adhere to the principles that made multicolor applications accessible to many biomedical research, core research, pharma and biotechs.
- Exquisite sensitivity for multicolor applications, up to 15 fluorescent colors to define populations
- Parameter matched to the CytoFLEX S V-B-Y-R series
- Intuitive software to facilitate multicolor analysis, CytExpert for CytoFLEX SRT
- Uses technology to increase ease of use by automating sort stream setup and maintenance throughout the sort
- 4-way sorting, mixed mode sorting, ability to catch aborts and preserve precious cells
- High recovery and post sort viability
- Accurate single-cell deposition using the Cyclone Movement System, including index sorting
- Sort into tubes, slides, or microplates
CytoFLEX SRT cell sorter is a benchtop sorter. It is capable of meeting requirements for a wide range of sorting needs. And like the CytoFLEX Platform, it includes innovative technologies that simplify the setup and operation, empowering investigators to focus on the research questions.
The Violet-Blue-Yellow Green-Red (V-B-Y-R) series has 15 fluorescent detectors when fully activated. The fully activated instrument includes five fluorescent channels from the 405 nm (Violet) laser, two from the 488 nm (Blue) laser, five from the 561 nm (Yellow Green) laser, and three from the 638 nm (Red) laser. It can be purchased with as few as five with an option to activate additional lasers and detectors with an activation key.
It is capable of complex sort logic with different combinations of sort settings on each of four streams, including the ability to catch aborts of one of the other streams. The CytoFLEX SRT cell sorter is designed for reliability and supported by teams of experts, remote support is ready using BeckmanConnect for on demand access to our technical specialists, perform many routine maintenance procedures independently.
