FX500 Exchangable Fluidics Cell Sorter

FX500 Cell Motion Imaging System

The FX500 is a microfluidics chip based cell sorter featuring a fully replaceable fluidics system. This lets researchers easily replace the entire fluidics path to control sample to sample carryover. The FX500 features comprehensive fluidics controls, advanced automation and easy to use software.

Patented CoreFinder™ technology automates instrument setup and streamlines workflow. The optical design offers up to three collinear excitation lasers - 488 nm, 561 nm and 638 nm and six fluorescence detectors. The six free-form PMTs enable detection of fluorescence signals from any laser based on filter setting. 

To support true ease of operations and save time, the software guides users through acquisition, sort control, sort monitoring and analysis. An experiment-centric approach makes the software easy to learn and use. Data can be easily exported as FCS 3.0 or 3.1 format for use with 3rd party analysis software.

Options include a Sort Deposition System and Biosafety cabinet. The Sort Disposition System enables sorting and precise deposition into 96 and 384 well plates and other plate formats. The BCC300 class II biosafety cabinet has been validated by the Baker Company to meet National Sanitation Foundation 49 Standard (NSF49), European Standard 12469 and other standards for product and personnel protection.
