The BD Accuri™ C6 is a personal flow cytometer that brings flow cytometry within reach by being easy to use, simple to maintain, and affordable.
The analytical power and versatility of today’s laser-based flow cytometry systems have unlocked the mysteries of cell biology and empowered entirely new fields of research. As a result, flow cytometry has become a staple of modern laboratories around the world. Innovations in ease of use reflected in the BD Accuri C6 make these powerful capabilities more accessible to a new generation of flow cytometry users.
Minimized Setup Time
The system is equipped with a blue and a red laser, two light scatter detectors, and four fluorescence detectors with optical filters optimized for the detection of fluorochromes such as FITC, PE, PerCP, and APC. A compact optical design, fixed alignment, and pre-optimized detector settings make the system easier to use.
Optional filters and the Selectable Laser Module expand the available fluorochrome combinations. During manufacture, laser and optical alignments are set and locked down. The result is that each BD Accuri™ C6 cytometer is manufactured with standardized fluorescence performance so that users do not need to adjust detector voltages.
Sample Flexibility with Optional Walkaway Sample Loading
A unique low-pressure pumping system drives the fluidics. A sheath-focused core enables event rates of up to 10,000 events per second and a sample concentration of over 5 x 106 cells per mL. In addition, the system derives sample volume and can calculate absolute counts or sample concentration per microliter.
