Beckman Coulter EPICS Altra

The Beckman Coulter EPICS ALTRA Flow Cytometer is a high-performance instrument that finds application in basic research, drug discovery, and clinical research activities. This high-performance system configured for high speed cell sorting is an excellent tool for conducting innovative research in immunobiology, cell physiology, molecular biology, genetics, water quality, and plant cell physiology.

The EPICS ALTRA Flow Cytometer can analyze and sort up to 6 colors simultaneously and perform complex multi-parameter applications, including DNA cell-cycle analysis, quantification, functional studies, chromosome enumeration and physiological measurements. The device offers easy and flexible operation, and features low-power air-cooled or high-power water-cooled laser options. It allows rapid separation of large numbers of specific cell populations. It offers sorting rates of up to 10,000 cells per second with air-cooled lasers and up to 15,000 cells per second with water-cooled lasers.
