  • BD LSR II System

"I have a STD 4 laser, 10 color instrument, and have been running it for almost a decade. Currently, I have just updated to DiVa 8, the latest generation UV laser and a solid state violet laser. My only real issue is that of all the instruments in my flow core this one blocks the most frequently, but it has the highest use (150-160 hrs/month). I now have a second SIP, and swap SIPs when blockages are reported. The major issue here is sample preparation rather than a defined fault in the instrument. New technology instruments (3 laser, 13 color @ ~AU$100-120,000) means this instrument is struggling as far as value for money is concerned. "

"I love using the LSR 2, though analysis can be complicated when doing 8 colors or more. It allows a lot of analysis with just one sample."

  • Application Area:Cell Analysis

"The equipment is pretty easy to use because of the integration between software and hardware. The data derived from the machine is pretty accurate compared to other cellular assays. However, the kit for the calibration of the baseline fluorescence is relatively expensive."

The BD LSR II can be configured with a 488 nm, 405 nm, 633 nm, and 355nm UV laser. At the heart of the BD LSR II are new digital electronics. The electronics digitize signals 10 million times per second in 16,384 discrete levels. This expands channel resolution and increases detection sensitivity. Electronic dead time is eliminated; more precise fluorescent measurements can be made improving linearity, compensation, and quantitation of fluorescence measurements.

BD LSR II System
  • Up to 18-color detection
  • Digital acquisition and analysis system
  • Flexible and modular for future upgrades

Laser Options

  • 355nm UV, 405 nm, 633 nm
