Hello Bari,
We did the camera upgrade a couple month ago. The main reason was to facilitate the setup of side streams like our Arias are in a biosafety hood. It works but still need some improvement, even BD told me this accessory is still on development.
The software for now allow to see only one camera at the time (BD is working on a software to see the 3 together)
Make DiVa crash when you are recording lot of events and have the camera software running
Don't have to put my head into the biosafety hood to look at the side stream, improve the safety of the users

Hello all,

We are debating the value of retro-fitting our Aria IIU with the new camera
accessory that will allow for sort stream setup without having the sort
block door open.. Has anyone done this, and if so, is it worth the price of
$10,000? We are only sorting mouse samples and couple of human cell lines,
so biohazard containment is a minimal concern...It would though help with
some of the new UC laser safety compliance rules...

I would love to hear any feedback and opinions!  Thanks, Bari
