BD Biosciences LSRFortessa


The BD LSRFortessa is an air-cooled multi-laser benchtop flow cytometer with the ability to acquire parameters for a large number of colors. It uses fixed-alignment lasers that transmit light through a flow cell to configurable octagon and trigon detector arrays. These detectors collect and translate the resulting fluorescence signals into electronic signals. Cytometer electronics convert these signals into digital data.


Venturelli Lab


The Venturelli Lab is responsible for training. Training sessions will occur every 3 months.
