A tool that readily allows viewing histograms representing the absorption and emission spectra for each BD fluorochrome. Enables easy decision making on which fluorochromes to use based on their relative emission spectra.


BD FACSelect™ Buffer Compatibility Tool

A tool to quickly assess buffer and reagent compatibility. This tool provides real experimental results for cells that have been processed using different variables including blood source, fixation or permeabilization buffers, fluorochromes, staining sequence and antibody titration. Offers result sorting by antibody specificities, lasers, fluorochrome, clone, specifies, localization (surface vs intracellular), cell source or staining protocol to help you quickly make your product selection.
