  • Application Area:Immunophenotyping

  • BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer

"Despite continuous technological progress and emergence of new improved flow cytometers, FACSCalibur, owing to its reliability and efficiency, after all these years that has passed since it was first released, is still one of the most often used flow cytometers in research. In my opinion FACSCalibur is the best option to start the adventure with flow cytometry to really understand the principles of the technique and then appreciate its advantages in everyday research routine. Even though, I work also with newer equipment including FACSCanto II and FACSAria III, FACSCalibur is still the most often used flow cytometer in our lab thanks to its all features mentioned above and relatively low price of the device in general.

  • Application Area:WBC Cluster of differentiation

  • BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer

"This platform was mainly designed to determine all parameters on the surface of WBC, known as CD which are all receptors on the upper membrane of the WBC. The system is user-friendly and the user can separately look at the different parameters on the same level through the software. Calibrating and maintenance of the device is well explained on the main screen and it has more specificity and sensitivity than the FC500 designed by Beckman Coulter."

  • BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer

"BD FacsCalibur is a phenomenon for flow cytometry machines. Most reference laboratories of hematology/immunology are using this technology. I can say as an immunologist/flow cytometry technician, that FacsCalibur is the best 4 color flow cytometry in the world."

  • BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer

"On my research activity I use a fairly broad range of equipment. One I use the most is flow cytometry (Beckton Dickinson) for different applications as assessment of cell viability, intracellular proteins, and cell cycle. Equipment is user friendly both in terms of samples processing and data acquisition and analysis."
