Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at the C. elegans Development, Cell Biology, and Gene Expression Topic Meeting in Nara, Japan
The BioSorter flow cytometer is designed to provide the flexibility for working with samples ranging in sizes from 1 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, that automatically loads samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting.
The LP.Analyzer is uniquely designed for laboratories that need high throughput analysis but do not need the gentle sorting (dispensing) feature of our COPAS or BioSorter instruments. Because it does not take time to dispense, the LP Analyzer is faster than our traditional COPAS and BioSorter models.
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.
