BD LSR Fortessa Flow Cytometry Analyzer equipped with HTS (High Throughput Sampler)


BD LSRFortessa X 20

The facility at 2117A Everitt Lab (click link for campus map) is equipped with a BD LSR Fortessa analyser. It is very similar in operation to the LSR II cytometers (RAL and ERML Satelite Facilities) but with greater analysing sensitivity. The HTS (high throughput system) is designed for samples in 96-well plates and 384-well plates. After receiving instrument training from the Flow Cytometry Facility staff, users are granted 24/7 access to the labs (advanced booking is required).

Default cytometer configuration for the LSR Fortessa analyzer:
