Sony taking orders for first cell analysis device


Sony Corp. will start taking orders this fall for a cell analysis instrument it has developed applying its Blu-ray disc technology.

Cell Sorter SH800 can be used for research in such areas as cancer, immunology and induced pluripotent stem, or iPS, cells, the electronics giant said Monday, adding the product is smaller and priced lower than conventional devices.

The size of the device, which costs around ¥20 million, has a width and depth of 55 cm and a height of 72 cm, similar to a compact refrigerator.

Applying Blu-ray technology, the device identifies such elements as the size, number and structure of cells by illuminating them with a laser, Sony said.
