Imaging and Flow Cytometry Core: BD Symphony A5 SE high-parameters flow analyzer training workshop
BD Symphony A5 SE high-parameters flow analyzer training workshop
High-parameter flow cytometry is a powerful analytical tool that enables scientists to identify and analyze distinctive phenotypes in heterogeneous populations. The newly installed BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE flow cytometer is a novel cell analyzer that leverages the inherent benefits of flow cytometry and enables the simultaneous measurement of up to 50 different characteristics of a single cell. BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE flow cytometer equipped with 5 lasers (355nm, 405nm, 488nm, 561nm and 637nm) and 48 detectors to detect full emission spectrum from five onboard lasers.
The BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE Cell Analyzer offers the ability to:
- Gain full visible spectrum coverage to collect all light emitted without the need for filter changes, increasing dye flexibility and number of simultaneous colors
- Unmix spectral data live in BD FACSDiva™ Software while retaining familiar compensation workflow
- Improve resolution of difficult cells and populations potentially using autofluorescence unmixing
- Choose between spectral or compensation-based workflows, achieved through careful optical design and added software functionality
The Training workshop will include a one-day mandatory introductory course and hands-on operation training session. Details is shown below.
