A question for the cell sorters amongst you.....
I am sorting cultured cells into 96-well plates (wells containing
appropriate culture medium) and am currently using PBS as a sheath fluid.
Experience tells me that cultured cells aren't too keen on PBS for long
periods of time and I wondered if this could have a deleterious effect on
the cells. Therefore, what alternative sheath fluid, if any, would you
Apologies if this is a naive question.
Thank you in anticipation
