The BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 cell analyser delivers high performance multicolor analysis with the most compact footprint in its class at just 76.2 x 73.7cm (30 x 29in.) and a height of just 76.2cm (30in.).
The BD LSRFortessa X-20 can be configured with up to 5 lasers, which enables the detection of up to 20 parameters simultaneously. The most common laser choices are blue, red, violet, yellow-green, and UV. Additional laser choices are available and may be configured at the time of purchase or at a later date to meet evolving application requirements.
In addition to the reduced size, design enhancements provide easier access to bandpass filters and mirrors, simplifying changes in the instrument configuration.
The patented collection optics of the BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 are arranged in polygon-shaped optical pathways. Their novel design efficiently maximises signal detection and increases sensitivity and resolution. This enables researchers to identify cells with especially dim expression, or quantitate rare cell populations, by optimising multicolor assays and panel design for best results.
BD FACSDiva™ software controls the efficient setup, acquisition, and analysis of flow cytometry data from the BD LSRFortessa X-20 workstation. The Cytometer Setup and Tracking (CS&T) feature of BD FACSDiva software establishes baseline settings and adjusts for instrument variability. The software reduces operator error, and ensures consistency of results.
To improve experimental workflow, the optional BD™ High Throughput Sampler (HTS) provides rapid, fully automated sample acquisition from microtiter plates. In high-throughput mode, the HTS option can speed through a 96-well plate in less than 15 minutes with less than 0.5% sample carryover from one well to the next. Low carryover is essential to ensure data quality in research applications.
