FLUIDICS Consistency, high performance Best-in-Class Design with Exceptional Flexibility Vacuum-Based System Enables Flexibility The BD FACSVerse fluidics system is vacuum-based for exceptional flexibility. This allows users complete freedom to acquire samples manually from virtually any tube format and streamlines workflow. Users simply click the sample tube in place to begin acquisition. The tube holder is built into the cytometer’s chassis to make it more robust and to protect the Sample Injection Tube (SIT) from daily wear. Through the precise coordination of the optical and fluidics...

Unique Sample Injection Tube Design for Reliable Results The unique Sample Injection Tube (SIT) design is key to the fluidics system in the BD FACSVerse analyzer. It consists of a stainless steel outer probe and an inner probe made of a high-performing polymer that descends into the vessel and draws in the sample during acquisition. This allows access to smaller diameter formats without affecting usability. When sample acquisition is complete, the sample injection tubing area is flushed, minimizing carryover. This simplifies workflow and reduces the potential aerosol formation. Feedback...

BD FACSUITE SOFTWARE In the past, generating accurate compensation matrices typically required running individual compensation controls for every fluorochrome used at least once a day. Thus, for a five-color experiment, all five fluorochromes would be run initially to determine their spillover values (SOVs) for a compensation matrix. To subsequently add a sixth fluorochrome to the experiment, users would have to re-run all six at the same time. BD FACSuite Home Page BD FACSuite software minimizes the frequency and number of compensation controls required by taking advantage of the accurate,...

BD FACSUITE Pre-defined and user-defined assays Streamlined Approach to Application Support BD FACSuite software provides optional BD pre-defined research assays for apoptosis, cell cycle, cell proliferation, and cytokine detection that are matched with BD reagent kits for reproducible results. User-defined experiments created in BD FACSuite software can be converted to reusable assays that include relevant settings, acquisition and analysis worksheets, gating strategies, and report parameters to reduce variability of data between users for the same application. In addition, before samples...
