FLUIDICS Superior Performance Unique and Revolutionary Designs for Multicolor Analysis Fluidics System The fluidics system is pressure driven. Hydrodynamic focusing forces sample cells through the cuvette flow cell, where they are interrogated. The flow cell is in fixed alignment with the laser and gel-coupled to the collection optics. This design ensures that the laser is precisely focused on the sample stream and the maximum amount of emitted light can be collected for added sensitivity in multicolor applications. Fixed alignment also minimizes startup time, improves...

OPTICS Maximum Signal, Minimum Crosstalk An Innovative and Proven Platform for Multicolor Analysis Optics System The optics system consists of laser excitation optics that illuminate cells in the sample, and collection optics that direct light scatter and fluorescence signals through spectral filters to detectors. Innovative designs for both the excitation optics and collection optics in BD LSRFortessa systems reduce excitation losses and optimize collection efficiency for increased sensitivity and resolution. The patented collection optics are yet another design innovation. Arranged in...

Collection Optics Emitted light from the gel-coupled cuvette is delivered by fiber optics to the detector arrays. The collection optics are set up in patented octagon- and trigon-shaped optical pathways that maximize signal detection resulting from each laser illuminated beam spot. Bandpass filters in front of each PMT allow spectral selection of the collected wavelengths. Importantly, this arrangement allows filter and mirror changes within the optical array to be made easily and requires no additional alignment for maximum signal strength. This design is based on the principle that light...

Greater Consistency Automated Controls for Setup, Acquisition, and Analysis Cytometer Setup and Tracking The Cytometer Setup and Tracking (CS&T) feature of BD FACSDiva software establishes baseline settings and adjusts for instrument variability. The software reduces operator error, and ensures consistency of results by setting the signal time delay across the multiple laser beams and optimizing PMT voltages. Application-specific settings can also be set, allowing for rapid setup and performance of routine experiments in a more consistent manner. Quality control (QC) tracking capabilities...
