BD Biosciences Launches New Cell Analyzer for Complex Multicolor Experiments in Disease and Drug Development Research
Date:6/1/2009

Special Order BD LSRFortessa(TM) Benchtop Flow Cytometry System Supports up to Five Lasers and 18 Colors Simultaneously

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- BD Biosciences, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced today the launch of the new special order BD LSRFortessa(TM) cell analyzer, a powerful compact system that provides life science researchers with the ability to conduct complex multicolor flow cytometry experiments.

"Our special order research products program combines the knowledge gained from decades of working closely with leading researchers and excelling in manufacturing," said Jay Glasscock, President, Cell Analysis, BD Biosciences. "It allows us to work closely with customers to configure a BD LSRFortessa system that meets their exact specifications."

The BD LSRFortessa system offers power and flexibility in a benchtop footprint that is significantly smaller than the industry leading BD(TM) LSR II cell analyzer. It is the only compact cell analyzer that supports up to five lasers. Researchers can choose from 30 positions for detectors and 11 laser wavelengths and multiple power options to detect up to 18 colors simultaneously. Working with BD Biosciences' flow cytometry experts, laboratories can configure a system that meets their precise assay requirements.

"Space is at a premium in most research settings, leading many labs to compromise system power and performance because of space limitations," said Glasscock. "The new BD LSRFortessa system eliminates the need for that sacrifice by addressing researchers' growing analytical needs and helping to maximize lab space utilization at the same time."

The BD LSRFortessa system is the newest addition to the proven line of BD(TM) LSR cell analyzers. The original BD LSR II system supports up to seven lasers and has been the preferred tool of life science researchers worldwide working in core, academic, pharmaceutical and biotechnology laboratories.
