Application Note: Bioprocess Monitoring with the BD Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer
2 November 2012
Flow cytometry offers a powerful and effective methodology for monitoring microbial fermentation. In this white paper from BD Biosciences, the BD Accuri™ C6 flow cytometer allows bioprocess engineers to use light scatter signals to discriminate cells and fluorescence signals to measure cell viability, vitality, and other important characteristics important in fermentation. The BD Accuri C6 interfaces smoothly with automated bioreactor sampling systems such as the MSP M5000 FlowCytoPrep™ sample preparation system, giving bioprocess engineer’s access to real-time, online bioreactor data for pinpoint process control.
