Overview: The BD FACSCalibur is a flow cytometer analyzer equipped with 2 lasers, generating data of up to 6 parameters for each event passing through the interrogation point.
Analysis occurs at the cuvette flow cell, increasing sensitivity and resolution, allowing detection of 2 relative physical properties as well as up to 4 different colors simultaneously. It can be run at 3 different sample flow rates and is capable of analysis rates of up to 20,000 events per second. It is operated using CellQuest Pro Software and is available for all labs to use.
