The FACS Canto Flow Cytometer has two lasers an air cooled 20mW solid state blue laser which excites at 488nm.
The other is a 17mW HeNe red laser which excites at 633nm which allows for 6-colour analysis.
Currently the FACS Canto Flow Cytometer can detect the following blue laser fluorescent dyes:
PerCP (678nm) or PerCP-Cy5.5 (695nm) and PE-Cy7(785nm).
The red laser dyes the FACS Canto Flow Cytometer can detect are APC (660nm) and APC-Cy7 (785nm). Together with 2 light scatter detectors this cytometer is the latest cutting edge technology that makes 8-parameter analysis a breeze.
Cellular metabolism studies: including changes in intracellular calcium levels cellular pH and changes in membrane potential
DNA analysis/ploidy/karyotyping: Studies of changes in DNA/RNA levels using DNA-binding dyes such as Ethidium bromide.
Cytotoxicity studies: including studies of Natural killer cell activity and Cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity.
It is never a good thing when things don't go quite to plan. If your laboratory instrument is giving you trouble you have come to the right place! In three simple steps you can be on your way receiving a quote on the repair of your broken lab instrument.
Step 1. Tell us a little about the instrument that is giving you trouble:
If you purchased your instrument from GMI in the past, It will have a Product Identification Number, this can be easily found by locating the PID sticker. The PID Sticker resembles something like this.
