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. Falibrite scatter FSC and side scatter SSC instrument sensitivity are measured by the mean channel separation between the light-scatter signal of the beads and background signal electronic and optical.

NOTE Invert bead vials completely when adding a drop to the tube. This allows cells to be distinguished from sample debris or background signal and for calibritr stained cells to be distinguished from unstained cells.

FL1, FL2, and FL3 fluorescence sensitivity is determined by measuring the mean channel separation between the signal of the labeled beads and the unlabeled beads. Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, resulting in Sensitivity Test failure.

Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label. I dont have a photo heads any of my first Prepare a blood sample daily from a normal donor.

BD Calibriteā„¢ – BD Calibrite PerCP-Cy Beads – BD Biosciences

Adjust fluorescence compensation using Tube B. UV Bsads lab with graph. The beads are used to adjust instrument settings, set fluorescence compensation, and check instrument sensitivity.


The drop should be cloudy, indicating the beads are properly mixed. All forms are provided in stabilized, buffered saline with 0. In some cases the software may not be able to automatically set up the instrument. Preparation of Test Suspensions Prepare all bead suspensions immediately prior to use.

One bottle is sufficient to perform 25 tests. After the instrument settings have been determined, BD Calibrite beads are used to evaluate instrument sensitivity.

Make sure to obtain a full drop of beads. Generate a printout of the Sensitivity Test results and keep the printouts in a log book. Notice populations with a lower FSC signal than lymphocytes debris, for example can be excluded by increasing the FSC threshold level. NOTE Different immunophenotyping preparation methods might require different optimization procedures.

Optimize instrument settings following two-color setup using a blood sample stained with any combination of monoclonal antibodies that identifies separate non-overlapping cell populations, such as FITClabeled and PE-labeled monoclonal antibodies.

If deterioration is suspected, prepare a new bead suspension and check instrument conditions. NOTE Over a period of time, the fluorescence separation might decrease. BD Calibrite beads are used to determine the appropriate compensation settings. Use the same staining method and run in parallel with the test samples.

Optimization following three- and four-color setup can vary depending on the application. Concentration values are listed in the following table: The suspensions are stable for a longer period of time in Bead Dilution Buffer.

BD Calibrite PerCP-Cy5.5 Beads

This instructions for use IFU provides information for two- three- and four-color setup. See examples in Optimization and Quality Control on page 4. Record PMT voltages and channel separations obtained for each parameter in a daily log sheet. Perform a Sensitivity Test using Tube B.


The FSC threshold is adjusted to a level that minimizes background signal if any. Weather and Climate for Educators. For information calibritee use, refer to the appropriate instrument manual.

Instrument settings might need to be manually optimized before running cells. A thorough investigation of sucrose Next, the software adjusts fluorescence compensation using a mixed-bead suspension containing equal amounts of the appropriate BD Calibrite beads.

How to make the beaded number line. For further assistance, calbrite your BD Biosciences service representative. Adjustment is similar for PerCP-Cy5. 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.

Optimization and Quality Control Because leucocytes have different optical properties than BD Calibrite beads, optimization of instrument settings with cell samples is important.

The flow cytometer has separate detectors or photomultiplier tubes PMTs that detect light signals. The decrease in separation for a wide variety of bead lots has been within 2. The 2color kit contains three different types of BD Calibrite beads: Wellington, Auckland, New Zealand bdbiosciences. calibritd


The following list illustrates PMT light signal detection: Observations of greater variations on a single instrument can be indicative of instrument instability. Gently mix the BD Calibrite bead vials, then add 1 drop of beads to each tube as indicated in the table below. Reagents are sufficient to perform 25 tests. An APC-labeled bead is available separately and may be used with the 3-color kit beadz perform four-color setup.
