The Cell Sorting Unit is equiped with a BD FACSJazz (2B/4YG) cell sorter and analyser. This cell sorter incorporates some new design features (intuitive alignment, real-time video monitoring, drop-delay confirmation,…) that simplify the operation of stream-in-air machines, which helps increasing the operational efficiency for high workloads.

  • 488 nm (blue) laser and 561 nm (yellow-green) laser independently aligned.
  • 20X, 0.6NA microscope objective.
  • Forward Scatter Detector and Filters: 75- and 50-mm lenses and PMT tube with a 488/10 BP filter and OD3 neutral density filter.
  • Side Scatter Detector and Filter: 90º collection lens and 488/10BP filter PMT.
  • Fluorescence Detectors and Filters: 90º collection lens and PMTs (2B/4YG).

The Facility also hosts a Extracellular Flux Analyzer, which can provide the value of the two major energy producing pathways of the cells: mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis, in a microplate and in real-time.
