Great instrument, up to 19 parameters; for expert users only.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Immunology; immune cell phenotyping and activation markers

"The LSR Fortessa X20 expands on the LSR Fortessa capabilities, bringing it to read up to 19 parameters. The plate reader is a nice and powerful addition although requires additional training to be used. It is not a flow cytometer for a casual/occasional user; it benefits from having specially trained staff, as it is relatively complicated and there are several tricks that may not be obvious to users not familiar with the instrument and that are essential to keep the instrument in working order. Even if maintained properly, it can be temperamental as it suffers from environmental parameter variations (such as ambient temperature, humidity). PROS: The instrument reads up to 19 parameters. The instrument is good value for money, in particular if buying the plate reader. It is important to buy the highest level of assistance contract. The customer service is extremely helpful when needing to solve issues. CONS: Requires expert users (not for beginners). The plate reader is extremely useful but not well integrated as it is obvious that it has been added at a later date. Requires inflexible environmental conditions."

BD repair services keep us from loosing precious data!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Flow cytometry, sorting

"I am a heavy user of the BD Fortessa and do over 10 color flow regularly. Being in a flow core, the machine breaks down frequently and the BD repair and maintenance is excellent in sending someone over in less than a day. My priceless samples that are fixed can't wait to get acquired and analyzed."

Very dependable. Very little day to day variation in results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Immunophenotyping, Analyse ROS and DNA damage markers

"The instrument is very dependable, with little to no day to day variation in results. Stainings done the same way on similarly treated cells achieves similar results. With 17 available channels spread across 4 laser lines, this instrument is the lifeline of all my flow cytometry work."
