Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) has announced the commercial release of the BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorters worldwide, expanding research tool access in cell biology, cancer research, and immunology.

Featuring BD CellView Image Technology and BD SpectralFX Technology, the new spectral cell sorters are designed to offer real-time imaging and spectral flow cytometry capabilities.

BD said the BD CellView Image Technology enhances the quality of sorts and samples, providing confidence in biological results and efficiency in downstream applications.

European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) research staff scientist Daniel Schraivogel said: “For my research in cellular biology, the instrument was perfectly configured when it came to the number of lasers and imaging capabilities.

“It has the same sorting speed and software capabilities as the five-laser unit, making experiments extremely scalable on an easy-to-use instrument.”

The BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorters allow researchers to gain complex biological and spatial insights, capture individual cell images, and isolate desired cells, based on visual characteristics at high speeds.

The three and four-laser models of the BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorter family complement the previously launched five-laser instrument, offering scientists more options and flexibility.

Schraivogel added: “In addition to the added value of spatial information that is needed for many projects in cell biology, infection biology and functional genomic screening, the imaging sorter allows us to better explore our cell populations and is used to validate true single-cell gating and sorting, to deliver better-quality cells and biological outputs.”

Last month, BD and Poland’s non-governmental non-profit organisation The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (GOCC) teamed up to expand testing for bloodstream infections (BSIs) and sepsis management in the country.
