LSRII number 2

In the coming weeks, the Flow Cytometry Facility will be getting its second BD LSRII. This instrument will have some additional lasers and fluorescence detectors compared to our current instrument. We're really excited about the potential of this instrument. The laser choices are what makes this instrument unique amongst all our analyzers. In the next few posts, I will be familiarizing you with the capabilities of this new instrument so you can prepare your experiments to take full advantage of what it has to offer. Some of the items put forth won't be unique to this instrument, but will go over things pertinent to the DiVa system in general. I'll try to point that out as each topic presents itself.
