Union Biometrica, Inc. to exhibit at the Northeast Regional Meeting of the Society for Developmental Biology in Woods Hole, MA
Replacing the tedium of manual sample positioning, the VAST BioImager automatically loads each larva into a capillary, positions it laterally, and then rotates it in the field of view of the on-board camera for organ level imaging. Alternately the VAST can be mounted on a high resolution upright microscope for high content bright field or fluorescent imaging at the cellular level.

About Union Biometrica, Inc.
Union Biometrica designs and markets tools for high throughput model organism research. This includes many of the model organisms traditionally studied by developmental biologists, 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 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 model organisms using our COPAS™ and BioSorter® instruments can be viewed using the links below.
