PERFLOW Sort (for analysis & sorting)

PERFLOW Sort (for analysis & sorting)

Furukawa Electric Co. launched PERFLOW Sort, a new-generation flow cytometer with the novel concept in analysis and sorting of cells. It delivers high-performance & high-precision analysis using transmitted light signals as well as unique damage-less sorting at a high survival rate for living cells.


  • Suitable for sorting delicate living cells such as Human iPS cells.
  • The optical fiber array-coupled flow cell design delivers high sensitivity.
  • High-precision measurement of cell size using transmitted light(TL) signal .
  • No optical axis adjustment is required.
  • Real-time flow speed monitoring.
  • Available exciting light source (laser) option.
  • Easy-to-use benchtop instrument.
  • Excitation laser option available.

Analysis functions

  • Multicolor analysis based on transmitted light and side scatter light information.
  • Easy-to-use management & analysis software (PERFLOW) installed as standard.
  • Measurement data are provided in the format corresponding to FCS3.0 date format.

Sorting functions

  • Damage-less sorting based on mechanical changeover mechanism without ultrasonic wave, charge and high pressure.
  • Variable cell number sorting from one to arbitrary numbers of cells per well
  • Variable bulk sorting from single cell to cell cluster
  • Sort single cell as well as cell mass into up to 384 multi-well plates.
  • Easy aseptic setup and cleaning.

(Note):The target cell with a low existence rate (an existence rate is less than 0.5%) can be sorted efficiently by using the unique Two-step sorting method.
For example, an existence rate of the target cell is 0.05%; single target cell can be sorted to every wells of a 96 MTP in less than 30 minutes by using the Two-step sorting method. Back to Main Content
