The BD FACSVia System with the BD Leucocount assay:

  • Provides accurate and reliable enumeration of rWBCs in leucoreduced blood products
  • Is an easy system to use and learn
  • Allows for space saving with a small and compact system
  • Improves workflow and laboratory efficiencies, helping to reduce the total cost of operations
  • Through intuitive clinical software, minimizes technical staff training, instrument setup and maintenance and sample processing and data analysis
  • Reduces pipetting steps and operator interaction with sample
  • Provides flexibility in workflow planning by allowing batch analysis
  • Eliminates possible source of errors associated with manual processes and bead pipetting, standardizing results with single platform cell counting using BD Trucount™ tubes

The streamlined methodology makes the BD FACSVia System easy to learn, easy to use and helps you do more with less.

Easy-to-follow steps for using the BD Leucocount kit

Applications - FACSVia

The BD Leucocount assay simplifies your ability to count residual white blood cells in blood products. The BD Leucocount reagent stains only nucleated cells such as leucocytes, leaving platelets and red cells unstained.

Studies1 confirm that BD Leucocount assays, together with BD Trucount tubes, provide reliable, reproducible results with demonstrated accuracy, linearity and precision.

A simple, one-step instrument setup enables you to improve lab efficiency by reducing manual workflows.

Innovations - Flow Cell
Predefined software templates are available for quick and easy setup and sample analysis: simply open a template, and the plots and regions for that assay automatically are displayed. Click Run to begin data acquisition.
Innovations - Sort Deposition
The BD Leucocount Kit is available for In Vitro Diagnostic use for counting residual white blood cells (rWBCs) in leucoreduced blood products.

Optional BD FACSVia™ Loader adds automation

This step-saving sampling option gives you walkaway convenience, increased throughput, and is compatible with standard 12 x 75-mm and BD Trucount tubes. The BD FACSVia Loader can handle 96-well plates when used with optional BD FACSVia™ research software.*

Optional BD FACSLink™ Laboratory Information System (LIS) interface

This easy-to-configure solution provides bidirectional transfer of information between BD FACSVia clinical software and your LIS.
