Technical Specifications
Accelerating Your Research with the BD FACSCanto
High Throughput Sampler Option



The new BD High Throughput Sampler (HTS) provides fully automated and rapid sample acquisition. It is designed to speed through a microtiter plate in 15 minutes* with sample carryover tolerances of 1% or less. The BD HTS adapts to the BD FACSCanto flow cytometer within a few hours, making it a fully modular system. It supports standard 96-well U-, V-, and flat-bottom, and 384-well flat bottom plates.

Fast acquisition speed is achieved by synchronizing two high-precision pumps for sample mixing, sample injection, and probe washing. You can choose a standard throughput mode to allow for acquisition of larger sample volumes. All sampler functions are operated through BD FACSDiva software, allowing you to create customized delivery protocols with user-defined mixing, wash, and analysis parameters.

For more information about the BD FACSCanto High Throughput Sampler option or other quality products from BD Biosciences, please contact your local sales representative or call one of the locations listed on the back.
