The BD Accuri® C6 is a digital basic flow cytometer, which is equipped with a Blue (488nm) and a Red (640nm) lasers, two light scatter detectors (FSC and SSC), and four fluorescence detectors.
The default configuration of the BD Accuri® C6 is similar to the FACSCalibur-2 (3-Blue 1-Red) with filters optimized for the detection of fluorochromes such as FITC, PE, PerCP, and APC.
The Selectable Lasers Module allows operation of the system in two additional configurations (2-Blue 2-Red, and 4-Blue) and significantly expands the fluorochrome combinations that can be analyzed.
A fluorometer or fluorimeter is a device used to measure parameters of fluorescence: its intensity and wavelength distribution of emission spectrum after excitation by a certain spectrum of light. These parameters are used to identify the presence and the amount of specific molecules in a medium.
Create custom fluorescence assays without having to purchase expensive filter sets. The top- and bottom-reading Gemini EM Microplate Reader with dual monochromators lets you determine the optimal excitation and emission settings for your creative new fluorescence intensity assays. If the best wavelengths are unknown, the Gemini EM reader will find them for you. Switch easily between top and bottom reading modes for solution- and cell-based assays.
