BD FACSDiva™ CS&T research beads (CS&T research beads) are designed for use on BD™ flow cytometers running BD FACSDiva™ software (v7.0 or later). The beads allow the software to automatically characterize, track, and report measurements of supported BD digital flow cytometers. CS&T research beads are dyed with fluorochromes which are excited by the cytometer’s lasers.

Preparation And Storage

Store vials at 2°C to 8°C and protect from light. Do not freeze. The beads are stable until the date shown on the vial label when stored as directed. Do not use after the expiration date. After dilution, the beads are stable for 24 hours at 2°C to 8°C or 8 hours at 15°C to 25°C when protected from light.
