Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at International Plant Molecular Biology 2018 (IPMB 2018) in Montpellier, France

July 23, 2018

Working with fragile plant protoplasts has long been a challenge. Union Biometrica has recently demonstrated high speed, gentle sorting of protoplasts. We have successfully used our instruments to sort intact plant protoplasts and encapsulated protoplasts. We will be available in Booth #102 to discuss some new applications of the BioSorter, including the use of plant cell clusters (calli), pollen and Arabidopsis thaliana seeds. These samples can be analyzed and dispensed intact owing to the low sample pressures, low shear forces and the gentle sorting mechanism. 

The BioSorter flow cytometer is designed to provide the flexibility for working with samples ranging in sizes from 10 to 1500 microns.  These samples can be analyzed and dispensed intact owing to the low sample pressures, low shear forces and the gentle sorting mechanism. Union Biometrica has developed an autosampler, LP Sampler, which automatically loads samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting.

About Union Biometrica, Inc.

Large Particle Flow Cytometry for Gentle Sorting -- Union Biometrica offers tools for high throughput research of bead based assays, stem cells and cell clusters (iPS cells and embryoid bodies as well as other types of large cells / cell clusters) 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. 

Peer reviewed journal papers and application notes referencing the sorting of small plant models using our BioSorter and COPAS instruments can be viewed via the links below.
