BD LSR II "Ondra"

LSR II (Becton Dickinson) is digital state of the art cell analyzer equipped by 4 lasers, 18 fluorescent channels and 2 channels for light scatter (FSC and SSC). The part of the system is also High Throughput Sampler (HTS) providing rapid, fully automated sample acquisition from microtiter plates. In high-throughput mode, the HTS can process a 96-well plate in fewer than 15 minutes. Standard throughput mode can be selected for acquisition of larger sample volumes. CST module and application settings in FACSDiva software take care for regular quality control and long term stability and repeatability of measurements.

BC Cytoflex "Oliver"

Cytoflex S (Beckman Coulter) is a powerful benchtop cytometer (4 lasers, 13 fluorescence parameters) with highly sensitive APD detectors, portability option and violet side scatter for enhanced resolution of small particles down to 200um. Sample loading from various tube formats and 96-well plates uses peristaltic pump allowing exact volumetric measurements and absolute cell counting.
