BD FACSCanto II

"We purchased the Facs Canto II with High Through put attachment (HTS). The HTS broke down several times within the first year, they kept giving us refurbished HTSs that were just as bad as the first one. We wanted to purchase a spare HTS that we could swap ourselves because we were tired of losing experiments when it broke down. The company's response? Charge us $8,100 dollars every year for the privilege of having a subpar replacement in a service contract, in addition to our regularly overpriced service contract for the whole machine. Next time we are definitely not purchasing from BD, we are going to the competitors!"

"Easy to use and overall good value for money. The carousel system facilitates multiple samples. Updated software would be good and after sales service could improve."

BD FACSCanto II

"Quick daily maintenance, end of day clean is simple and allows you to walk away. High throughput analyzer. Engineers are very helpful on the phone and very quick to respond to initial contact with technical support. Engineer in lab within 1-2 days. FACSDIVA software allows detailed analysis of data."

BD FACSCanto II

Description

 

BD FACSCanto II flow cytometer - A proven platform for maximum reliability and the highest quality results

Built on more than 25 years of BD experience and leadership in flow cytometry and multicolor analysis, the BD FACSCanto II system is an easy-to-use benchtop analyzer that delivers proven performance, accuracy, and high-quality results.

The BD FACSCanto II provides the ultimate in flexibility and can be configured with two or three lasers to detect up to eight colors

The BD FACSCanto II system features many innovations. At the heart of the FACSCanto II cytometer, for example, the fluidics system features a fixed-alignment flow cell to minimize startup time and improve reproducibility.

The BD FACSCanto II fluidics system is designed to:

• Streamline work
• Save time
• Improve performance.

In the fluidics system of the BD FACSCanto II, 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 of the FACSCanto II permits particles to flow through the center of the flow cell. Increasing the sample pressure increases the core diameter and the flow rate.
