Beam alignment Dual axis optical system
Detection parameters 12 fluorescence + 2 scatter
Pulse measurement Height, Area, Width
Fluidics
Sample tube Single, auto-loading tube
Tube types 0.5-mL, 1.5-mL, 5-mL and 15-mL tubes
Sort Devices 2-way tube, 4-way tube, multiwell plates, PCR plates
Temperature control 5°C, 37°C (electric cooling method)
Agitation unit Eccentric rotation
Magnetic drive 300 rpm speed
Sorting chip size 70 μm, 100 μm
Sort Performance
Event rate 70,000 eps
Sorting speed Automated frequency search range

  • 70 μm : 40 kHz to 52 kHz
  • 100 μm [Targeted] setting : 21 kHz to 23.5 kHz
  • 100 μm [Standard] setting : 27 kHz to 31 kHz

Using the 70-μm sorting chip at 52 kHz and a threshold rate of 12,000 events per second,
purity >98% and recovery >80% can be achieved. The yield obtained is based on Poisson’s statistics. Higher threshold events per second can be achieved without affecting purity but with a decrease in yield based on Poisson’s statistics.

Scatter resolution 0.5 µm
Fluorescence resolution <3.0% coefficient of variation (CV): PI stained CEN
Fluorescence sensitivity FITC ≤95 MESF, PE ≤90 MESF
