Beckman Coulter MoFlo XDP
About the Beckman Coulter Mo-Flo XDP cell sorter
The Beckman Coulter MoFlo XDP is a high speed cell sorter. It is equipped with 3 lasers, 2 light scatter detectors and 11 fluorescence detectors. The instrument is equipped with a temperature controlled waterbath to keep samples and collected samples at a required temperature (2C - 37C). An aerosol containment unit with filter is also attached for operator safety.
Up to 4-way sorts are available and samples can be sorted into plates (1536-, 384-, 96-, 24-, wells), 12x75mm FACS tubes, 1.5mL eppendorfs, 15mL centrifuge tubes (2-way sort only), 50mL centrifuge tube (2-way sort only) and onto standard slides.
The instrument uses a 70nm nozzle and runs at a pressure of 60psi. With this setup, it is capable of running samples at speeds of up to 40,000 cells/second.
