We are preparing an equipment grant. Ideally, we would need a flow cytometer that is a good, robust analyzer and that can also be used as a sorter. I know about the Aria, but am concerned that when this instrument is used simply as an analyzer it will be too difficult to operate for people who are occasional users. I am also concerned that unlike a robust analyzer (e.g. Calibur), a high-speed sorter - even in the analysis mode - is not going to tolerate cell suspensions that might have a few clumps.
Is it safe to say that we have to make a choice between an analyzer and a sorter ? For us the analyzer is more important because it will be used much more frequently.
Thank you so much for your input !
