Overview

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 data acquisition and analysis 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.

 

See our spectral workflow in BD FACSDiva™ Software

Get a sneak peek on how you can directly interact with image data in real time on a flow cytometer. Image and flow data on each event are integrated. You can easily view the image for an event by mousing over a dot on any scatter plot, even during acquisition. There is an image wall feature that allows you to look at images of all the events within a gate. While the sample is running, the image wall will update in real time to display the last 50 events that were analyzed.
