FAQs for Cell Sorting

What types of cells can I sort?

Any type of cells, which can be easily kept in single cell suspension, can theoretically be sorted. Cells that easily clump, agglutinate or settle out of suspension can be problematic when sorting, as this will cause clogging of the nozzle and disturbance of proper droplet formation. Primary Human samples or samples infected with BSL2 pathogens require special handling and engineering precautions. Please contact Mike Solga (924-0274) for special instructions prior to scheduling these samples.
