Your users have unique needs.

Meet them all with
a ZE5 Cell Analyzer
in your core lab.

Human diseases are complex, so you need advanced tools for your research. Flow cytometry instruments and antibodies from Bio‑Rad give you just that. Plus the confidence to do more. The high‑parameter, high‑throughput, automation‑capable ZE5 Cell Analyzer lets you expand your panels to look at more markers in your precious samples as well as run large-scale screening and validation experiments. The compact S3e Cell Sorter brings fluorescense‑activated cell sorting to your lab and lets you isolate pure, viable cells anytime for CRISPR gene editing, next‑generation sequencing, and single-cell analysis. Pair these instruments with our ever‑expanding antibody library to make your experiments come alive and give you confidence in your data.

A Flow Cytometer Built for Automation

High Speed, High Throughput, High Parameter

The ZE5 Cell Analyzer is the only flow cytometer with the ideal combination of production throughput, smart sample-handling,
and superior speed and sensitivity. Analyze up to 100,000 events per second with high reproducibility, use the integrated universal sample loader to run any sample tube or plate format, and expand your panels to 30 parameters to fit any experiment. With its API, the ZE5 can be integrated into any work cell for automated analysis. And its innovative sample delivery system ensures quick processing, reduced carryover, and minimal sample loss by returning unused precious cells to the sample plate
or tube for later use.

Cell Sorting

No Experience? No Problem. The cell sorter anyone can use.

Core lab users who need lots of fresh, viable cells for next-gen sequencing and single-cell analysis need a cell sorter that is easy to use so they can use it themselves. This frees you up to focus on the more complex cell sorting projects, and gives them the ability to isolate viable cell populations when they need it. The easy-to-use yet powerful S3e Cell Sorter was designed for novice users, but engineered to enable high speed sorts with maximum recovery and viability.

Designed for Rare Cells and Precious Samples

Sorting rare cells and precious samples requires a powerful yet fast cell sorter. Without the S3e Cell Sorter in your lab, your samples are at risk of cell death. Find out how fast and easy it is to preserve your rare and precious samples when sorting with an S3e Cell Sorter, right in your lab.

Enhance the power of Droplet Digital technology with the S3e Cell Sorter

Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital technology enables precise, sensitive analysis of nucleic acids. Combining the S3e with ddPCR or ddSeq lets users quantify DNA/RNA as well as uncover heterogeneity in targeted cell subpopulations.

Pure, Viable Stem Cell Populations

Isolating cancer stem cells from tiny biopsies, stem cells from blood, and iPSCs or ESCs from culture — with high purity and viability — is a challenge that users can meet with the S3e Cell Sorter.

With its unique feature set and technical ease of use, the automated S3e Cell Sorter allows you to perform 1–4 color sorts in less than 30 minutes and greatly enhances your experimental success. The S3e utilizes stream-in-air fluid dynamics for a gentler
high-speed sort while automated setup and email or text message notifications let the user truly multitask during a sort. To learn more about how an S3e Sorter in your own lab can transform your research, explore our selection of technical information below.
