The Sony SH800 FACS Cell Sorter provides fully automated set up and highly accurate sorting in an easy to use, easy to maintain system. This walk-up flow cytometer cell sorter utilizes a microfluidics sorting chip and 4 lasers that increases sensitivity, giving you up to 8 parameters for each event, and allowing you to collect up to 2 different populations and 6 different colors. The SH800 is about 1/3rd the size of a conventional cell sorter thanks to the integrated laser technology and compact mechanical system, including interchangeable nozzle chips that range in size from 70 to 130 microns. This allows disposable components to be used, instead of using fixed, expensive quartz flow cells. This flow cytometer features Blue 488 nm, Violet 405 nm, Red 638 nm and Yellow/Green 561 nm lasers with a colinear optical system, and 6 fluorescent +2 scatter detection parameters. Samples are taken from a single 1.5 ml, 5 ml or 15 ml tube and can be sorted into a 2-way tube or a 96 well plate.


The Sony SH800 FACS Cell Sorter uncomplicates set up by guiding users with powerful software that takes the guess work out of optical alignment, side stream calibration, and delay time adjustment as well as data analysis after. Samples of this cell sorter can also be run with user adjusted flow rates, and sort parameters, while high-speed signal processing lets the SH800 achieve a high purity sorting performance and results you can count on.
