BD is releasing its new BD FACSymphony S6 cell sorter, a device that utilizes the BD FACSymphony cell analyzer high parameter capabilities (shown at right). The device features six-way sorting, measuring up to 30 different parameters to decide into which compartment to send each cell.
The company touts the “ultra-quiet” electronics within the device that optimize accuracy, allowing for particularly rare cells to be spotted with greater confidence. Additionally, customers have the option to “customize their systems with up to nine spatially separated lasers each with multiple power ratings to fully leverage the broad portfolio of BD Horizon Brilliant™ reagents,” according to BD.
“The new BD FACSymphony S6 system is the newest advance in our 40 year history of leadership and innovation in flow cytometry and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to helping researchers better understand and characterize the single cell,” in a statement said John Ledek, worldwide president of Biosciences for BD. “The additional technological capabilities this system brings our customers, coupled with our unmatched global support and application services teams, will help facilitate the discovery of new biological insights, enabling researchers to push the envelope of scientific inquiry.”
