The BD Accuri™ C6 Plus Cell Analyzer Provides Simplicity and Sensitivity on Your Benchtop 



  • Equipped with a blue and red laser, two light scatter detectors and four fluorescence detectors with optical filters optimized for the detection of many popular fluorochromes, including FITC, PE, PerCP-Cy5.5 and APC
  • Easy to use with no need to adjust detector voltage
  • Data are digitally collected over a wide dynamic range and are fully available to you as needed, eliminating the risk of data loss due to incorrect settings
  • Software functions such as Zoom and VirtualGain allow visualization of data at any scale, so you can precisely set gates and regions
  • Extraordinary fluorescence sensitivity with optical and fluidic design provide the ability to withstand rugged conditions. Provided the system is anchored, it can run samples even if the benchtop is in motion, such as aboard a ship
