The Sony MA900 Multi-Application Cell Sorter has been nominated for the Best New Life Sciences Product of 2018 in the Scientists' Choice Awards.
Learn how a developmental cell biology lab combined single-cell sorting with RNA sequencing to accelerate stem cell maturation and model cardiac abnormalities. This is the first in our profile series of real-world applications for the Sony SH800 cell sorter.
Learn how the Sony SH800S cell sorter supports gene expression profiling to purify phenotypically similar cell populations in bulk.
Researchers used spectral flow cytometry and fluorescent proteins to capture both movement and interactions of immune cells in live mice.
Recent advances in genome editing and the application of fluorescent proteins have accelerated Interest in isolating specific populations of brain cells from mixed populations. Researchers are also using cell sorting to isolate single cells for expansion and analysis.
Placing several fluorescent proteins together in a flow cytometry panel offers greater power and capability for experiments. However, handling autofluorescent signal with fluorescent proteins is out of reach for conventional flow cytometetry users. Sony spectral flow cytometry analyzers enable researchers to harness up to five near infra-red fluorescent proteins in a single experiment. Moreover, spectral technology lets users accurately identify autofluorescence, and eliminate it if needed.
Researchers are isolating the Candidatus Erwinia dacicola bacteria from the guts of olive flies on a Sony SH800S and amplifiying Genomic DNA to construct a library for sequencing.
Learn tips from the field for managing the costs of antibodies for flow cytometry.
Bacteria such as E. coli are popular model systems for engineering and production of modified proteins. Yet the idea of putting bacteria in a cell sorter conjures unwelcome images. Take heart, the Sony SH800 cell sorter, simplifies decontamination by quickly and easily letting researchers replace key components that come in contact with the sample. Here are some examples, and publication citations.
Listen to Dr. Jennifer Doudna, one of the discoverers of CRISPR systems discusses how the new genome engineering technology was discovered.
