S3e™ Cell Sorter

The S3e Cell Sorter is the first truly walk-away automated cell sorter. Real-time monitoring and smart features make cell sorting easier and accessible to both novices and experts.

This compact system is equipped with either one or two lasers and up to four fluorescence detectors plus forward- and side-scatter detectors...

Features and Benefits of the S3e Cell Sorter

·         Hands-free nozzle tip alignment — features the fully automatic AutoGimbal™ System, driven completely by software

·         Simplified instrument setup — fully automated drop delay calculation, stream alignment, and droplet break-off monitoring enable precise 1–4 color sorting with minimal training

·         Compact design — dimensions of only 70 × 65 × 65 cm (2.3 × 2.1 × 2.1 ft) including onboard fluidics and temperature control system

·         2-way cell sorting — sort two different defined populations at the same time

·         High speed and high purity — sort cells fast while maintaining high sensitivity and purity

·         Intuitive interface — user-friendly ProSort™ Software enables effortless instrument control and sort logic definition
