BD Influx (Life Sciences Centre)



Recently acquired, the BD Influx is our most capable high-speed cell sorter. Equipped with 5 lasers (488nm, 561nm, 405nm, 640nm and 355nm), the Influx can acquire up to 16 parameters simultaneously. Contained in a HEPA-filtered enclosure, sterile sorting is possible for up to 4 (soon to be 6) populations as well as into 6-384 well plates with indexing capabilities.
Like the FACSVantage and FACSAria IIu, the Influx is used in a variety of research including stem cell and cancer research. Exchangeable fluidic lines help mitigate the risks of cross-contamination, making the Influx capable of handling bacterial, viral and marine samples as well.
