Biomedicum Sony SH800 updated

In Biomedicum the Sony SH800 sorter has been upgraded with two additional lasers (405nm and 638nm) lasers. Detectors and sort options stay the same, but optional filter settings are available and need to be changed when using 405 laser; ask personnel for help and check instrument page. Note! Since the lasers are collinear, fluorochromes with similar emission cannot be detected at the same time (e.g., PerCP and APC). The maximum fluorochrome number is still six but the options are now broader
