Dear Flowers,
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
