About Union Biometrica, Inc.
Union Biometrica also designs and markets 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 under a microscope. These systems sort and dispense 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 zebrafish  using our COPAS and BioSorter instruments can be viewed using the link below.
