Union Biometrica to exhibit at ENDO 2016 in Boston, MA

March 28, 2016

The BioSorter flow cytometer is designed to provide the flexibility for working with samples ranging in sizes from 10 to 1500 microns.  This very broad range of sizes includes many interesting types of cells, cell clusters and even whole organisms. These samples can be analyzed and dispensed intact owing to the low sample pressures, low shear forces and the gentle sorting mechanism. For more detail and to see a video on BioSorter go to: http://www.unionbio.com/biosorter/

Union Biometrica has also developed an autosampler, LP Sampler, which automatically loads samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting.  It is ideal for objects ranging from 10 to 1500 microns in diameter. It is capable of gently aspirating those samples from multiwell plates or a petri dish and delivering them intact to Union Biometrica’s BioSorter, COPAS FP™ and VAST BioImager™ systems. It has the flexibility to handle a variety of standard or deep well plates including 24, 96 and 384.

About Union Biometrica, Inc.
Large Particle Flow Cytometry for Gentle Sorting -- Union Biometrica offers tools for high throughput research of stem cells and cell clusters (iPS cells and embryoid bodies as well as other types of large cells / cell clusters - adipocytes, hepatocytes, cardiomyocytes, duct cells and pancreatic islets cells) bead based assays, plus model organisms (early stages of zebrafish, C.elegans, Drosophila embryos and larvae, sea urchin embryos, Xenopus eggs and embryos, Daphnia, various marine larvae and zooplankton). We provide Large Particle Flow Cytometers (COPAS™ and BioSorter) for objects that are too large / too fragile for traditional cytometers and offer an alternative to manual sorting. These systems analyze and sort objects based on size and fluorescent parameters. Automating this process offers increased speed, sensitivity, quantification, and repeatability of experiments.

For examples of Stem Cell and Cell Cluster screens - including hiPS and embryoid bodies as well as other types of large cells / cell clusters including adipocytes, neurospheres, duct cells and pancreatic islets – please see:http://http://www.unionbio.com/publications/publication.aspx?id=39
