BD Spectrum Viewer


The BD Spectrum Viewer is a tool that depicts the excitation and emission curves of fluorochromes common to flow cytometry. This tool can be used to determine appropriate filters to detect a fluorochrome as well as fluorochrome compatibility and fluorescent spillover. Unlike a static image showing excitation and emission histograms, this tool will demonstrate how a fluorochrome will have the same emission profile—but have varying brightness—based on the excitation wavelength of the laser. Choosing different laser wavelengths will transform the emission curve based on the percent excitation at that wavelength.
