The BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE Cell Analyzer offers the ability to:

  • Gain full visible spectrum coverage to collect all light emitted without the need for filter changes, increasing dye flexibility and number of simultaneous colors
  • Unmix spectral data live in BD FACSDiva™ Software while retaining familiar compensation workflow
  • May improve resolution of difficult cells and populations using autofluorescence unmixing
  • Access spectral abilities on your BD FACSymphony™ A5 instrument with an A5 SE upgrade kit
  • Choose between spectral or compensation-based workflows, achieved through careful optical design and added software functionality

What is spectral cytometry?

Spectral flow cytometry represents an alternative measurement strategy to conventional flow cytometry providing advantages in flexibility of fluorescent label inputs without having to change filters, as well as the ability to multiplex more fluorescent labels in one multicolor sample.

With the BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE Cell Analyzer, you have the power to choose between spectral or compensation-based workflows. This is achieved through careful optical design and added software functionality.
