Beckman-Coulter Moflo Astrios

MoFlo Astrios – Cell Sorter


A 4 laser, high speed-high yield, temperature controlled cell sorter (the first one in the Middle East) capable of 6-way sorting / 6-1536 well plate sorting. The MoFlo Astrios is the new standard for cell sorting with functionality, speed, and improved sensitivity.


  • 4 laser / 4 pinhole configurable system; 355nm, 488nm, 561nm, 640nm.
  • 6-way sorting with a variety of collection devices (temperature control for all sort outputs).
  • Mixed Mode sorting: each sort stream is capable of having its own sort mode (Enrich, Purify, Single) programmed. Soft aborts and waste can be collected for reanalysis or resorting
  • Only sorter capable of >70,000 sort decisions/second validated performance
  • 32 bit processing and 100 MHz sampling speeds
  • Zero electronic dead time equates to no hard aborts
  • >100,000 acquisition rate/second validated performance
  • 5-decade dynamic range PMTs
  • Height, Area, Width, Log, Log Area collected simultaneously for all parameters
  • 1 billion events .fcs files with no parameter limit
  • Jet-in-air nozzle (70/100 µm)
  • SmartSampler (Sample Input) 5 ml, 1.0 mL, 1.5 mL, 5 mL, 7 mL, 15 mL, 50 mL tubes accepted
  • Any tube type (glass, polypropylene, polystyrene, etc).
  • Aerosol Evacuation System (AES) pulling particulates from three (3) chambers with verified performance to meet the ISAC guidelines.
