Beckman Coulter Cytomics FC500 Flow Cytometer

More information.

Beckman Coulter Cytomics FC500 Flow Cytometer The Cytomics FC 500 Series is a sophisticated product family equipped with the most advanced technologies available. The FC 500 Series delivers flexible testing, powerful software and a user-friendly interface - features that help scientists optimize their overall workflow efficiency while maintaining true cost effectiveness. Plus, each FC 500 Series system is backed by Beckman Coulter's unsurpassed reputation for quality and service. Designed for powerful performance and unmatched simplicity Conducts 5-color analysis from either single or dual laser excitation Improves efficiency by enabling scientists to analyze more antibodies per tube than ever before on an automated system Gives investigators the power to expertly manage every aspect of their flow cytometry studies with the revolutionary CXP software. The systems have the capacity to conduct 5-color analysis using either asingle(488nm)laser or adual(488nm/633nm)air-cooled laser configuration. Coupled with the ability to perform tube or plated based automated analysis, the FC500 Series improves efficiency by enabling users to easily manage and automate every aspect of their flow cytometric analysis. Beckman Coulter's ADC technology provides superior correction of spectral overlap and more accurate results. With ADC technology, biological samples can be used for automated color compensation, without the limitations of latex beads. Only Beckman Coulter flow cytometers offer Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for excellent linearity, drift-free amplification and color compensation. The FC 500 with ADC also enables investigators to: Perform digital signal processing with 20-bit data in real-time Obtain fast, intuitive compensation feedback to set or fine-tune compensation manually with the QuickCOMP feature Increase the visualization of low intensity fluorescence populations To accommodate numerous configurations, the FC 500's user changeable filters provide fluorochrome selection flexibility. Customized Photomultiplier Tubes (PMTs) detect a broad range of wavelength emissions, which can be used for virtually any dye excited by 488 or 635 nm lasers. Only the FC 500 can be used with a variety of fluorochromes to analyze five colors (FITC, PE, ECD, PC5 or APC and PC7) using either one or two lasers. Investigators could also use Beckman Coulter's IOTest multicolor reagents and drop in their choice of additional conjugated antibodies to make their own combinations. Performs five-dimensional automated phenotyping analysis with Prism, a unique data reduction display allowing analysis of up to 32 individual phenotypes in a single plot. Extends multicolor analysis to utilize the full visible emission spectra, which further boosts the level of flexibility that can be achieved.
