Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) analysis showed that, on day 7 after CLP, more than 99% of the [CD11b.sup.+][Gr-1.sup.+][CD48.sup.+] cells from Gfi1:GFP knock-in mice were [GFP.sup.-], and the [CD11b.sup.+][Gr-1.sup.+][CD48.sup.-] cells were [GFP.sup.+] (Figures 3(b) and 3(c)).
The geometry model of for cell sorting is illustrated in Figure 1, which consists of 2 upstream branches (U-branches), 1 transitional channel, and 4 downstream branches (D-branches).
"Integrating BD's single cell sorting capabilities and expertise with our next-generation single cell genomic technologies will provide researchers with a scalable, cost-effective approach to high resolution gene expression studies," Stephen Fodor, Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of Cellular Research, said in a news release.
In first, mutated cells were prepared by transfection of ZFNs into porcine fibroblasts, coupled with reporter-based enrichment systems utilizing two different cell sorting methods, FACS and MACS, described previously (Kim et al., 2011; Kim et al., 2013).
After cell sorting, cells were cross-linked with 1% formaldehyde for 10 min.
The unattached cells were harvested and cultured in SK medium for 2 days and expanded in growth medium (DMEM, 20% fetal bovine serum, 1% antibiotics) before cell sorting.
Among the potential applications of the device are point-of-care cancer cell sorting and diagnostics, says Huang.
The BD FACSAria III Cell Sorting System is a next-generation flow cytometer with the ability to run complex multicolor experiments using up to six lasers.
Among specific topics are microfabrication, photonic crystal hollow waveguides, fluid-controlled optical elements, optofluidic switches and sensors, fluid filled optical fibers, and flow cytometry and fluorescence-activated cell sorting.
Another new technology introduced to Qatar is fluorescenceactivated cell sorting which is used by researchers in WCMCQ's stem cell laboratory to separate and purify collections of stem cells with great speed and precision.
With unprecedented insights on the molecular basis of disease and the rise of "personalized medicine", cell sorting is heading into its golden age.Some forms of high-speed cellular identification and sorting are used to do CD4-cell counts in patients infected with the AIDS virus; in diagnosing leukemia and lymphoma; and in helping physicians decide what drug may best treat certain types of cancer.
