Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at VerMidi XXI in Marseille, France

January 17, 2018

The COPAS FP™ platform is designed for the measurement of objects ranging in size from 20–1500 microns (diameter). Each of the four COPAS FP models features a fixed, specially engineered fluidic path, flow cell and optics optimized for a specific subset of that size range to provide maximum speed, accuracy, resolution and throughput, depending on the application. Instruments can dispense objects either into bulk receptacles or multiwell plates. To learn more, see our COPAS FP video at: http://www.unionbio.com/copas/

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 of Model Organisms  - Union Biometrica offers tools for high throughput research of model organisms such as C.elegans, Drosophila embryos and larvae, early stages of zebrafish, 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.

Peer reviewed journal papers referencing the sorting of C.elegans using our COPAS and BioSorter instruments can be viewed using the link below.
