BD™ Multi-Check
Flow cytometry


The BD™ Multi-Check control is intended as a complete process control for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. It is a control for antibody staining, red blood cell (RBC) lysis, instrument setup and performance, and data analysis.

Preparation And Storage

• Store vials upright, tightly capped, at 2° to 8°C when not in use.

• Unopened vials are stable until the expiration date indicated on each vial and Assay Values sheet.

• Opened vials are stable for 9 thermal cycles (uses) when handled properly. A thermal cycle constitutes performing all steps under Instructions for Use once.

• Avoid unnecessary cycles of warming and cooling.

• Protect from freezing, from temperatures above 30°C, and from prolonged time (>30 minutes) at room temperature (18° to 26°C).

• Follow exactly the steps under Instructions for Use.
