Rotating Sample Chamber
The Rotating Sample Introduction Chamber for COPAS FP gently agitates samples without using mechanical stirring. Both 5 mL and 10 mL sample chambers are included. Use on a COPAS FP instrument with either a 250 or 500 µm configuration. The Rotating Sample Chamber is designed specifically for
• handling extremely delicate samples (adipocytes, plant protoplasts, etc.)
• samples that tend to either float or sink in a sample cup with normal stirring-type agitation. Chamber can be used with 250 & 500 micron flow cells
Typical use with a mouse adipocyte preparation enables analyzing 100 objects/second and dispensing intact adipocytes constituting 10% of the preparation.
