If this occurs, manually adjust the settings. For information on use, refer to the appropriate instrument manual. Perform a Sensitivity Test using Tube B. Next, the software adjusts fluorescence compensation using a mixed-bead suspension containing equal amounts of the appropriate BD Calibrite beads.

The light scatter calibeite is determined by the amount of channel separation between the mixed bead population and instrument background signal. Reagents are sufficient to perform 25 tests.

BD Calibrite PerCP-Cy5.5 Beads

Make sure to obtain a full drop of beads. Gently mix the BD Calibrite bead vials, then add 1 drop of beads to each tube as indicated in the table below. Use the same staining method and run in parallel with the test samples.

Record PMT voltages and channel separations obtained for each parameter in a daily log sheet. Compensation adjustments for FL1, FL2, and FL3 correct for spectral overlap by shifting the labeled bead populations so they are aligned with the corresponding unlabeled bead populations.


It might be necessary to adjust the FSC and SSC amplifiers so that all leucocyte populations are on scale, and to adjust compensation and threshold settings see Figure 1. I dont have a photo of any of my first Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. This product is licensed for sale only for in vitro diagnostics.

The flow cytometer has separate detectors or photomultiplier tubes PMTs that detect light signals.


An APC-labeled bead is available separately and may be used with the 3-color kit to perform four-color setup. The 2color kit contains three different types of BD Calibrite beads: Optimization following three- and four-color setup can vary depending on the application. NOTE Invert bead vials completely when adding a drop to the tube.

Both scatter and fluorescent light signals are detected. The 3-color kit contains these beads plus a PerCPlabeled bead. If deterioration is suspected, prepare a new bead suspension and check instrument conditions. Bads refer to the appropriate application note or reagent IFU. Figure 1 through Figure 4 show examples of optimization for two- three- and four-color applications.

A thorough investigation of sucrose Prepare a blood sample daily from a normal donor. Label two 12 x mm polystyrene tubes Tube A and Tube B.

Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, possibly resulting in Sensitivity Test failure. One bottle is sufficient to perform 25 tests. This instructions for use IFU provides information for two- three- beeads four-color setup.

BD Calibriteā„¢ Beads

NOTE Over a period of time, the fluorescence separation might decrease. After the instrument settings have been determined, BD Calibrite beads are used to evaluate instrument sensitivity. Wellington, Auckland, New Zealand bdbiosciences. UV Bead lab with graph. All forms are provided in stabilized, buffered saline with 0. FL1, FL2, and FL3 calibrkte sensitivity is determined by measuring the mean channel separation between the signal of the labeled beads and the unlabeled beads.

NOTE Different immunophenotyping preparation methods might require different optimization procedures. Weather and Climate for Educators. It is not licensed for any other use.

Because BD Calibrite beads simulate unstained cells and cells that have been stained labeled with fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies, the beads are used to adjust the instrument settings before cell samples are run on the flow calibritee. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label.

Notice populations with a lower FSC signal than lymphocytes debris, for example can be excluded by increasing the FSC threshold level. Preparation of Test Suspensions Prepare all bead suspensions immediately prior to use. Optimization and Quality Control Because leucocytes have different optical properties than BD Calibrite beads, optimization of instrument settings with cell samples is important.
