Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at the Great Lakes International Imaging and Flow Cytometry Association (GLIIFCA) Meeting
We will be available at the meeting to discuss some new applications of the BioSorter, including the use of large delicate cells such as adipocytes and plant protoplasts, cell clusters such as mammalian neurospheres, 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 loads samples from multiwell plates to the BioSorter for analysis and resorting.

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, stem cells and cell clusters as well as encapsulated objects. 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.
