Cytek Development has just such a device called the Time Zero Module that can be adapted for use on a big variety of instruments.  See http://www.cytekdev.com/products_accessories.xhtml

It isn't compatible with the Aria but I am sure that there are some out there who are working on this.  For a little inside info on putting something like this together see:

Subject: [Cytometry] Calcium flux measurement

The recent string of calcium flux related mailings with respect to an effective way of adding the agonist to the cells after baseline measurement is taken , without the necessity to pause the flow cytometer, has to beg the question , if there were a device that could  introduce the agonist to the cells when the operator required it without disturbing the flow of cells through the flow cytometer how many people / companies would be interested in this if , say ,such a devise would only cost approx. $2 per assay ?

I would be very interested if anyone had a view on this could mail me just to say they were interested, or even the reasons why they would not be  .

Many thanks
