Customer Testimonials

“The consistency and the regulatory compliance of the BD FACSLyric™ Flow Cytometry System’s output is what really drew us to the platform. It is currently unmatched by other flow cytometers in its ability to generate reliable, repeatable results across tests and instruments—even for the most complex assays we deal with day to day. We’ve found it particularly beneficial for multi-parameter testing for CAR T cells immunophenotyping in immune oncology for non-clinical analysis.”
