Flow cytometry - what is the cost (Jul/25/2010 )

We are starting a new lab and would like to have a Flow cytometry

But we also need to control how much money that we spend.
Thus, can anyone tell us how much flow cytometry generally cost and what brand is most popular

Thanks a lot


We have a little Accuri C6 which is quite nice and easy to use. Not sure how much it costs, I think maybe in the region of 40,000?!

We also have a much larger BD FACS Aria II which is capable of carrying out cell sorting. This obviously has more lasers/detectors etc and I think may cost in the region of 200,000...

It could be worth your while looking for some second-hand basic flows. They'd prob do the trick and would save you a tonne of cash.
