Most of you folks probably don’t pay enough attention to this sort of thing. But the Cell Sorters are approved for BSL2+ sorting. However this ideally involves a significant level of PPE which is often times not utilized. In order to accommodate a wider array of sample types and materials, while at the same time keeping sorter operators (both staff and user) safe we have installed bioBUBBLE enclosures around both of the cell sorters. See below for a picture of the new Wintrobe Aria set up. These essentially operate as a Class I biosafety cabinet.
