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.
