BD FACSDiscover™ S8 Cell Sorter

The first real-time imaging, spectral flow cytometer


Derive greater insights and unlock new discoveries using image-enabled sorting and spectral flow cytometry.

BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorter with BD CellView Image Technology and BD SpectralFX Technology, the first spectral flow cytometer sorter with sort-capable image analysis, expands the power of cell analysis and sorting to new dimensions by combining spectral flow cytometry with real-time spatial and morphological insights—empowering scientists to address previously impossible-to-answer questions.


  • Obtain insights on cell populations and characteristics that can be visually confirmed in real time during analysis and sorting
  • Enhance spectral flow cytometry with spatial and morphological insights to interrogate and sort cell types that previously could not be identified or isolated
  • Simplify your workflow with built-in visual inspection capabilities, more flexible panel design and automated features
  • Create a comprehensive profile of highly complex diseases and systems with correlation of downstream analysis with imaging and traditional flow data
