BD Jazz (Life Sciences Centre)
Recently acquired, the BD Jazz is “classed” as our dirty high-speed cell sorter. Equipped with 3 lasers (488nm, 405nm, 640nm), the JAZZ can provide aseptic sorting for up to 2 populations. It has been modified to use a 70um nozzle which makes it a suitable sorter for bacteria samples. It can be cleaned and prepared as a clean sorter, if required.
As we acquire more sorters, we are trying to optimise each for for different research areas, to minimise the potential impact of one group on another.
