Flow Cytometry Analyzer (Cytomic FC500; Beckman Coulter)
The Cytomic FC 500 System offers automated tube-based acquisition for cell-based
Assays. This system is equipped with the following two lasers: an Argon ion laser (488nm) and
a Red solid state HeNe laser (631nm). Photodiodes also detect Forward Scatter (FS) and Side Scatter (SS) signals.
The following range of emissions can be detected:
|525 nm/40||(FL1; FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate; Alexa Fluor488; GFP, green fluorescence protein; CFSE, carboxyfluorescein diacetate; Calcein)|
|575 nm/40||(FL2; PE, phycoerythrin; PI, propidium iodide)|
|620 nm/20||(FL3; PE, phycoerythrin; TexasRed; PI, Propidium Iodide) 675 nm/40 (FL4; APC, allophycocyanin; PE-Cy5, conjugate that combines phycoerythrin and cyanine dye 5; Alexa Fluor 647)|
|755 nm/40||(FL5; PE-Cy7, phycoerythrin conjugated with cyanine dye 7; APC-Cy7, conjugate of allophycocyanin and cyanine dye 7; APC-Alexa Fluor750, allophycocyanin conjugated to Alexa flour750.|
