MA900-cell-sorter

Sony MA900 Multi-Application Cell Sorter

Up to 14 parameters from 4 lasers

The MA900 enables the detection of up to 14 parameters. Choose from 4 excitation lasers—488 nm, 405 nm, 561 nm, and 638 nm—on two beam spots. Free-form PMTs enable detection of fluorescence signals from each beam spot, allowing detection of up to 12 fluorescence parameters and two scatter parameters.

Multi-Application Intelligence

Providing choice and flexibility for most flow cytometry tests and applications, the MA900 supports 12 fluorescence parameters and 4-way sorting.

Easy-to-use wizards and advanced automation guide users through the testing workflow from start to finish, increasing reliability and putting the focus on the biology, not the cytometer.

The MA900 system is packed with innovative, modern capabilities including patented microfluidic chip-based design, adaptable fluidic controls and intelligent automation.

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.
