The FACS Melody cell sorter has a Windows 10 based operating system running FACSChorus software, and has 3 lasers and 9 fluorescent detectors giving it the ability to detect and sort most of the commercially available flow cytometry reagents. The Beckman-Coulter Galios analyzer has 2 lasers and 8 detectors allowing for fast and accurate analyses of samples.
