LSRFortessa X20 Standard


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.
