The multi-sample loader on the Invitrogen™ Bigfoot Spectral Cell Sorter is the first of its kind among commercially available cell sorters, offering more functionality than many existing flow cytometry analyzers.
The 6-position multi-sample loader allows the controls for a 5- to 10-color experiment to be loaded in one or two sets. The multi-tube loading capability is especially efficient for studying 20 or more fluorescence parameters, which is increasingly common in flow cytometry.
All sample-related subsystems, including the multi-sample loader, are contained inside the fully integrated biosafety cabinet (BSC) for optimal safety, efficiency, and performance.
A multitude of laboratory and research needs are met with one instrument, because the Bigfoot Spectral Cell Sorter combines a multi-sample loader, an integrated BSC, and a high-performance cell sorter in one flexible and powerful system.
This paper explains the many benefits of the Bigfoot Spectral Cell Sorter including an example of it can acquire samples on average within 9.89 seconds, excluding the time for rotation to the sample station, which varies with the location of each position.
