Sony LE- SH800SFP Fluorescence-based sorting is available on a new generation chip-based Sony sorter with 4 lasers (488 nm, 405 nm, 638 nm and 561 nm), two scatter and six fluorescence parameters. The sorter is able to work with a wide range of fluorochromes, fluorescent proteins and vitality or cell tracker stains thanks to its 4 lasers and versatile filter systems (max 6 channels). The machine can perform two-way sorting in flow cytometry tubes, or in 8 well strips, microscopic slides or 6-,12-, 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-well plates.

The theoretical and optical background of chip-based sorting is very different from conventional sorting, so please consult our staff before designing any panel. Thanks to the low sheet pressure, sensitive cell types can be sorted for further culturing.
