Please note that there will be an electrical shutdown of the Duff Bldg on May 13 from 6am to 2pm. During this time, the facility won't be accessible (nor will the bldg). Another shutdown is planned on May 14 from 6am to 10:30.
In order to ensure that our instruments aren't affected buy the shutdown, if you are planning to use the analyzers on the evening of May 12 or May 13, please make sure that you turn the instrument and the computer off before leaving the facility.
Thank you all for your collaboration! (remember, this also gives you a good reason to spend the weekend outside of the lab!)
We finally received, installed and aligned the Fortessa's new red laser. The analyzer is now back to its usual 18 colours configuration. Thanks everyone for your patience.
Please note that the new red laser for the Fortessa has been ordered. Its estimated shipping date is November 18. In the meantime, you can still use the Fortessa as a 15 colors analyzer (don't use fluorochromes excited by the red laser!).
Don't hesitate to contact us to see how we can work around this issue until the new laser is installed
