Flow Cytometry System

The multicolor, multilaser Gallios is the first in a series of flow cytometry instrument, software, and reagent releases. The Gallios houses up to three reliable, solid-state lasers in standard red and blue, with violet available as an option. Easily interchanged optical filters facilitate detection of a variety of dyes and wavelengths. A forward-scatter detector provides up to three measurements of cell size and visualization. A side-scatter detector incorporates an independently focused photodiode with electronic attenuation. Six fluorescence detectors provide simultaneous acquisition of up to six fluorescence signals. Up to four fluorescence detectors can be added to the system, enabling concurrent reading of up to 10 colors.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
