FACS Canto II 2L with HTS - Irchel 1

The FACS Canto II has two laserlines 488 nm (blue), 633 nm (red) and allows measurements of 8 parameters (FSC, SSC and six fluorophores).

A High Throughput Sampler (HTS) for 96-well plates can be used for efficient high-throughput screening approaches. An additional introduction is required before usage.

Important: Please filter all your samples prior to measurement ( ⇒ Falcon #352235) and perform all washing steps described in the SOP to avoid clogging of the system.

Samples can only be loaded in 5 ml FACS tubes made of polystyrene (clear plastic e.g. FAL352058), polypropylene tubes (milky plastic like e.g. falcons or Eppis) will not pressurize. Minimum sample volume is 200 ul.
If you have sample volumes < 200 ul to load you can place an additional micronic tube in the 5 ml tube (e.g. Vitaris, Product no.: 32022-MIC).


The instrument is located on the Irchel Campus in 44 G 3e.
