The MoFLo Astrios is a jet-in-air system with 4 lasers and 16 fluorescence detectors. Unlike the other cell sorters, the Astrios is a Jet-in-air system, which allows more flexibility in the regulation of the flow and sorting speed. It's also possible to collect up to 6 cell populations simultaneously from a single sample. Cells can be collected in Eppendorf, 5ml tubes, 15ml and 50ml tubes for bulk sorting. Alternatively, single cells or small number of cells can be sorted into plates, from 6-well to 1,536-well plates.
