The BD FACSAria Fusion cell sorter has UV, Violet, Blue, Yellow/Green and Red lasers and can detect up to 18 colors. This instrument can simultaneously sort 4 different populations into 1.5, 5 or 15 mL tubes or 96-well plates. BD FACSAria Fusion has precisely integrated fluidic and optical systems to maximize signal detection. It is also integrated into a biosafety cabinet and includes an aerosol management system to enable sterile sorting.
As Fusion operates on FACSDiva software and optics setup similar to Symphony A3, Symphony S6 and Fortessa instruments, most of the experiments optimized on those machines should transfer to this machine with minimal modification.
