Sales rep from BD on Gallios and CytoFlex
As per my voice message, I understand you are looking for a quote for 6 color Gallios Flow Cytometer, but we now have a new, much smaller flow cytometer with greater capability than the Gallios, and less expensive.   It is called the CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer.   The CytoFLEX is available in 21 different configurations from a 1 laser/4 color system to a 3 laser/13 color system in a small box (16in x 16in x 13in).   It is completely upgradable to any configuration at any time.   A 96 well plate loader option is available as are 561 nm and 375 nm laser options.   Independent testing has proven this instrument to be one of the most sensitive instruments in the market today.
 If the 561 or 375 nm lasers interest you, please let me know and I will forward additional information on our CytoFLEX “S” System.
