Becton Dickinson FACSymphony A5 SE Cell Analyzer

Becton Dickinson has launched the FACSymphony A5 SE (Spectral Enabled) Cell Analyzer, a fluorescence-activated, spectral-enabled cell analyzer that allows researchers to choose between spectral or compensation-based cell analysis to meet different flow cytometry needs. The new SE analyzer is an enhancement to the company's existing FACSymphony A5 Cell Analyzer, and users of that platform can obtain software and hardware upgrades to enable spectral analysis.

Spectral flow cytometry represents an alternative data acquisition and analysis strategy to conventional flow cytometry, providing flexibility of fluorescent label inputs without having to change filters, as well as the ability to multiplex more fluorescent labels in one multicolor sample, BD said.
