"A reasonably reliable instrument, but reaching the end of its life. Not upgradable to Canto II specs, in fact no hardware updates available. Increasingly parts have to be sourced from the Canto II parts bin to maintain operation. Does run DiVa 8 without issue. I am upgrading mine with a FACSVerse. "

When performance matters
BD has been innovating flow cytometry since the release of the first commercial flow cytometer in 1974. That tradition continues with the new BD FACSCanto™ benchtop flow cytometer. Its key features are:

  • True 6-color capability — Get more information per cell from smaller sample volumes
  • Sensitive (<50 MESF PE, <100 MESF FITC*) — Resolves the dimmest events
  • Quick (10,000 events/sec) — Accelerates rare event acquisition
  • Low carryover (<0.1%) — Minimizes sample contamination
  • Keyed optics — Change filters without tools
  • Fixed optical alignment — No user adjustments necessary
  • Automated housekeeping routines — More time for science
