Performance

A new diagnostic standard delivering outstanding performance and standardization within and between instruments

The BD FACSLyric™ Flow Cytometry System is a high-performance, highly sensitive flow cytometer that demonstrates exceptional resolution and improved separation to make dim and rare cell populations easier to resolve.

 

 

 

Highly reproducible results between instruments drive standardization.

Between-instrument reproducibility of target MFI values on the BD FACSLyric™ System

Lyse/wash assay settings were imported across 15 instruments to show effects of standardization on beads. The CVs of the fluorescence intensity across all channels varies by less than 15.3%. Daily QC with one lot of BD® Cytometer Setup & Tracking Beads was run on fifteen BD FACSLyric™ Flow Cytometers. For each instrument, the PMTV gains were automatically adjusted to meet the target values. BD® FC Beads acquired on each BD FACSLyric™ Instrument. The MFI of positive populations was measured for all parameters across all instruments. The %CV is shown. The data for this internal study were acquired using BD® FC Beads across 15 BD FACSLyric™ Instruments. Greater between-instrument variability could be observed when running biological samples, when using non BD reagents or when comparing fewer instruments. 

Applications

A Powerful Solution for CD4 Counts and Other Immunological Assessment

With the BD FACSLyric™ Flow Cytometer, clinical laboratories can obtain repeatable and reliable results for immunological assessment of patients having or suspected of having an immune deficiency such as HIV.

“The consistency and the regulatory compliance of FACSLyric [Flow Cytometer]’s output is what really drew us to the platform. It is currently unmatched by other flow cytometers in its ability to generate reliable, repeatable results across tests and instruments—even for the most complex assays we deal with day to day. We’ve found it particularly beneficial for multiparameter testing for CAR T cells and immunophenotyping.”

“The assay portability of BD FACSLyric is the key to efficient method transfer and high data reproducibility. It represents a clear advantage in a regulated environment, where conditions must be met to produce valid results of a guaranteed level of quality. Functional immune cell–based assays and cytokine quantification in preclinical and clinical drug development is a particularly important area where BD FACSLyric offers clear technical advantages.”
