BD CellView™ Calibration Beads are designed for use on BD FACSDiscover™ flow cytometers with BD CellView™ Image Technology. The beads enable the software to automatically calibrate the imaging system. These beads are hard dyed fluorescent particles that are excited by the 488 imaging laser and emit fluorescence across the supported fluorescent detectors.
