Regulatory Status Legend
BD™ FC beads are fluorescent beads that enable the software to determine spillover values (SOVs) for fluorescence compensation and calculate a fluorescence compensation matrix during setup of BD™ flow cytometers. The combination of BD™ CS&T beads and BD FC beads accurately sets the voltage and compensation for each of the channels of the instrument. BD FC beads can also be used to standardize multiple instruments.
