BD LSR II ( TAC S613 )

Contact:, or call 203-785-7958

  • Multilaser multiparameter analysis cytometer
  • Four lasers, 12 colors
  • Digital data collection using FACS DIVA software
  • Automatic compensation (compensation controls are still needed)
  • 355 nm (UV): BUV737, BUV395, DAPI
  • 405 nm (Violet): CFP, Alexa Fluor 430, Pacific Blue, Marina Blue, Alexa Fluor 405
  • 488 nm (Blue): FITC, PE, PerCP, Pe-Cy5 (aka CyChrome), PI, PerCp-Cy5.5, PE-Cy7, GFP, PE-Texas Red
  • 633 nm (Red): APC, APC-Cy7, Alexa Fluor 647, Alexa 680
  • Availability of UV gives a capability to perform Ca 2+ flux experiments.
  • Unlike a FACSCalibur, it is possible to use PE-Cy5 and APC together.
