BD Trucount™ Controls

Product Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow


BD Trucount™ Controls are designed for use with BD Trucount™ Tubes and a suitably equipped flow cytometer as a control for certain elements of the absolute counting process. Specifically, a control bead value that is outside the expected range could indicate an error in pipetting or a problem with the value from the BD Trucount™ beads. BD Trucount™ Controls are not intended as a substitute for a cellular control.

Preparation And Storage
