Regulatory Status Legend
BD™ CS&T RUO beads allow the software to automatically characterize, track, and report performance measurements of supported BD flow cytometers. The beads are dyed with fluorochromes which are excited by the cytometer’s lasers.
Preparation and Storage
Store vials at 2°C–8°C and protect from light. Do not freeze. The beads are stable until the date shown on the vial label when stored as directed. Do not use after the expiration date. After dilution, the beads are stable for 24 hours at 2°C–8°C or 8 hours at 15°C–25°C when protected from light. After dilution, the beads are stable for: – 8 hours at 15°C–25°C or – 24 hours at 2°C–8°C when protected from light.
