    Description

    The FACSCalibur analyses cells or particles at a rate of up to 2000 events per second, a high throughput sampler (HTS) allows for automated sampling from 96 or 384 well plates.

    Analyses include immunophenotyping, viability, DNA content, cell cycle, plant ploidy, DNA/RNA ratios, apoptosis measurements, cytokine expression, intracellular calcium, oxidative burst, intracellular pH, phagocytic activity, mitochondrial membrane potential and bead array assays.

    Flow cytometry analysis generates bivariate dot-plots and histograms which can be used to calculate population statistics and changes in mean-fluorescence intensity within the sample.
