FACSAria III is a benchtop research flow cytometer being at the same time cell analyzer and cell sorter. Being equipped with three lasers (405nm, 488nm and 633 nm) it provides multicolor analysis of different types of separated cells or particles with the detection of up to 13 fluorescent markers and 2 scatter parameters at a time. The instrument allows to identify individual classes and populations of cells and measure their surface and intracellular markers; to estimate functional states of cells (mitochondrion potential, intracellular calcium concentration, pH, etc.) using special ratiometric stains such as FDA, DiOC1, JC -1, etc.; to perform cell cycle analysis; to study apoptosis, phagocytosis, kinetics of cell processes; to perform molecular-genetic analyses using fluorescence probes; etc. For specifications visit www.bdbiosciences.com.
