To further expand your lab’s best-in-class clinical diagnostic services, the BD FACSCanto system has 10-color capability.* Optical enhancements and a 4-3-3 configuration deliver high sensitivity and resolution for accurate results. The optics of the BD FACSCanto system consist of an excitation source with three lasers: blue (488-nm, air-cooled, 20-mW solid state), red (640-nm, 40-mW solid state), and violet (405-nm, 30-mW solid state). Laser excitation optics illuminate cells in the sample, and collection optics direct light scatter and fluorescence signals through spectral filters to the detectors.

In the fluidics system the sample travels up the sample injection tube, and hydrodynamic focusing within the flow cell forces particles into a single-file stream where laser light intercepts the stream at the sample interrogation point. The unique flow cell design permits particles to flow through the center of the flow cell. Increasing the sample pressure increases the core diameter and the flow rate.

Data integration speeds results, improves reproducibility.
