FACSAria Fusion specifications

The BD FACSAria Fusion is an advanced system for experienced users, achieving high sensitivity and resolution with flexibility and control. The Aria Fusion can meet a variety of needs with its range of nozzle sizes, adjustable dynamic range of sample flow rates, and selection of sort devices- including 2-way and 4-way tubes as well as 6-, 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well plates. The Aria Fusion is installed in a fully integrated custom Class II Type A2 biosafety cabinet for protection of personnel and products. The cabinet incorporates a built-in aerosol management system which operates independently to actively evacuate aerosols from the sort collection chamber. The dual routes of aerosol evacuation maximize protection.
