	Hi Michele,

	Well if you throw in a couple of extra PMT's to process plus some compensation
you be able should get close to 20 000 events/sec. I figure that the marketing people at
BD should be ashamed of themselves for advertising such a blatantly wrong/unrealistic
number. Has anyone been able to get higher because I'd like to know under what conditions
and what their yield/purity was?

	Hello All,
	Does anyone know the maximum sort rate on the Aria to recover viable cells (
Lymphocytes for example)? I know BD say 70000 events/ sec but this is not for viable
	I can sort up to 10000cells/ sec on a Vantage, is the Aria significantly higher? 
	Thanks in advance.
