    BD LSRFortessa X-20
    "The Fortessa X20 is essentially the latest generation of the LSR. The platform and the software have been around for over a decade. My instrument is 5 lasers, 18 colours, with emphasis on the violet and yellow/green lasers. Now, 10 months after purchase, my instrument is heavily used both for tubes and 96 well plates on the HTS. Unfortunately, we had a long lag time where a simple but hard to detect problem robbed us of a reliable instrument. BD have been highly supportive throughout the process, even bringing the director of SORP to look at the instrument. I am still likely to replace my aging LSR II with a second Fortessa X20."

    Application area: Part of my flow cytometry core, used by many groups across multiple partners.

    COULTER® Ac·T diff™ Analyzer
    "This is a great little instrument in an unusual role. While it used to monitor the health of mouse models, it is primarily used to determine cell concentration prior to immunological staining for flow cytometry. It is much faster and more accurate than a manual haemocytometer count, easy to use cheap. It’s one drawback is, it is difficult to extract data from the instrument, it is easiest done manually (write the relevant data on paper), if you have an old enough printer (SCSI) it can print the data, but some newer printers (SCSI) corrupt the printed file. Long term I would like to move to a 5Diff instrument, this would give me more relevant information in the context of a translational research institute, but it would also mean I could plug it into my booking system and extracting results would be much improved (excel/printing/etc).
