BD Biosciences' BD LSRFortessa System, aimed at life-science researchers, uses up to four lasers - blue, red, violet and UV - to enable the detection of up to 18 colours simultaneously.
The system occupies a 30 x 36in benchtop footprint, allowing researchers to maximise utilisation of their lab space without sacrificing system power.
It includes a number of technologies, including novel collection optics that reduce excitation losses and improve light-collection efficiency.
The result is optical efficiency that delivers maximal sensitivity and resolution for multicolor applications.
'Our quest is to enhance cellular analysis by making multicolour flow cytometry analysis more powerful and accessible to life-science researchers,' said James Glasscock, president, Cell Analysis, BD Biosciences.
This system is complemented by the BD LSRFortessa Cell Analyzer.
The BD LSRFortessa is customer configurable with up to five lasers, as well as a choice of more than 11 wavelengths, 30 positional choices for detectors and multiple power options to meet researchers' exact specifications.
