BD FACSCanto Clinical Software

Improve productivity with worklist-driven sample processing

For reduced hands-on time, users can control runs with worklists in BD FACSCanto™ clinical software. These worklists predefine sample order and the specific panel for acquisition and analysis of each tube.

Highly automated sample management

In addition to building new worklists by using the keyboard or barcode reader, users can import BD FACS™ Sample Prep Assistant (SPA) worklists and use saved worklists as templates. Imported information can be reviewed and edited within BD FACSCanto clinical software for missing or incorrect entries.

Optional BD™ FACSLink connectivity software easily connects the BD FACSCanto™ II system with an existing customer Laboratory Information System (LIS) to enable bi-directional transfer of data. The software simplifies laboratory workflow by customizing data reporting, securing validation, and electronically transferring data to reduce manual transcription. The solution automates the process from request to reporting to help reduce errors and improve data quality and laboratory workflow.
