Becton Dickinson: FACSCalibur Benchtop Cytometry Analyser

The BD Calibur contains an air-cooled argon-ion laser and 635nm red diode laser that can be used for 4 colour detection. Due to the fluidic and optical layout of the BD Calibur, this instrument is capable of high-resolution DNA content detection as well as electronic doublet discrimination for the removal of artefacts. It is a very reliable and popular machine; ideal for experiments containing two to four colours.


Non configurable analogue system with 3 channels from the Argon Laser and 1 from the Red diode this ensures that even complex protocols and fluorochromes can be used.
