BD FACSAria™ flow cytometer/cell sorter


Physical characteristics of cells can be measured through a BD FACSAria™ flow cytometer/cell sorter. This instrument allows the Fluorescent-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) and detection of particles in a fluid stream through a light beam. Relative cell size and cell subpopulation complexity can be analyzed by the intensity of fluorescent tags.
