The BD FACSAria instrument is the first benchtop flowcytometer with sorter that incorporates a fixed-alignment cuvette flow cell. This new flow cell provides superior fluorescence sensitivity. The fixed optical system offers freedom from instrument maintenance and alignment. It accommodates two air-cooled lasers at 488-nm, 633-nm and analyse 9 parameters simultaneousely. It can achieve Digital acquisition rates of up to 70,000 events/second. At present we are performing following tests on this machine:
Diagnosis of Paroxysmal Haemoglobinuria.
Analysis of major and minor lymphocyte subsets.
Diagnosis of platelet function defects.
Diagnosis of different primary immunodeficiency disorders.
Diagnosis of red cell membrane defects.
Characterization of haematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells.
