BD LSRFortessa X-20

Flexibility in a Small Space

The BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 fits most flow cytometry analyzer needs, and can be ordered with up to 5 lasers—most commonly, blue, red, violet, yellow-green, and UV—which provides flexibility in laser wavelengths. This allows researchers to optimize assay design by selecting the latest fluorescent dyes and antibodies in experimental protocols. The instrument can accommodate the detection of up to 18 colors simultaneously with a defined set of optical filters that meet today’s assay requirements.


Compact Footprint - Product Shot

The BD LSRFortessa X-20 is designed to support your current assay requirements. In addition, as future needs arise, optical capability can be added or upgraded.

A compact footprint and height of 76.2 x 73.7 x 76.2 cm (30 x 29 x 30 in.) allows the BD LSRFortessa X-20 to fit easily on the benchtop for the cost-effective use of valuable laboratory space. In addition to the reduced size, design enhancements provide easier access to bandpass filters and mirrors, simplifying changes in the instrument configuration.

To improve experimental workflow, the optional BD™ High Throughput Sampler (HTS) provides rapid, fully automated sample acquisition from microtiter plates. In high-throughput mode, the HTS option can speed through a 96-well plate in less than 15 minutes with less than 0.5% sample carryover from one well to the next. Low carryover is essential to ensure data quality in research applications.
