FACSAria Flow Cytometer

FACSAria Flow Cytometer

The BD Sciences FACSAria flow cytometer is capable of identifying cells based on size, complexity, and up to 13 different fluorescent labels, and sorting them into separate test tubes or multiwell plates. The sample chamber includes temperature control to improve the long-term viability of the cells being sorted.

The FACSAria flow cytometer incorporates a fixed-alignment cuvette flow cell for cell sorting.

It is equipped with 407-, 488-, and 633-nm laser lines and can interrogate 15 parameters: forward and side scatter, and 13 fluorescent detectors (7 off 488nm, 3 off 407nm, and 3 off 633nm).

It has 70- and 100 mm nozzle tips, and two- or four-way sorting into microtubes or test tubes. The Automated Cell Deposition Unit (ACDU) permits multiwell plate and slide sorting. The sample injection chamber includes agitation and temperature control.

These acknowledgements are very important because documenting our contributions helps to ensure that the resources of the Core Facilities are sustainable.

  • Equipment: If you used Core Facility equipment, please note this in the Materials and Methods. e.g., Thermogravimetric analysis was carried out using a TA Instruments TGA-Q50 (Rensselaer CBIS Analytical Biochemistry Core Facility).
  • Personnel: Please consider including CBIS personnel as co-authors on your publications when they have made a significant intellectual contribution to the research. Include CBIS Core Facility directors or staff as co-PI or co-investigators in grant applications when they provide a significant contribution to the grant proposal and scientific/intellectual leadership for the proposed work. Please follow these guidelines: ABRF Recommended Guidelines for Authorship on Manuscripts. Also, our Core Facility personnel always appreciate when they are mentioned in the Acknowledgements section of publications.
  • Required Funding Authorization Form: Rensselaer researchers must fill out the CBIS Cores Authorization Form (PDF) to use the CBIS Core Facilities.
