Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at the American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting

December 9, 2013

The BioSorter flow cytometer is designed to provide the flexibility for working with samples ranging in sizes from 1 to 1500 microns. This very broad range of sizes includes many interesting types of cells, cell clusters and even whole organisms. We will be available at the meeting to discuss some new applications of the BioSorter, including sorting large delicate cells such as adipocytes and plant protoplasts, cell clusters such as mammalian neurospheres, plant calli and fungal pellets, in addition to cells encapsulated within hydrogel particles. 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™ that automatically transfers samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting. Information regarding the meeting is available at:

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.
