The C6 is a 2 laser (488nm and 640nm) system. From the 488nm laser up to 3 fluorescent detectors are available and only one detector for the 640nm laser. This cytometer is available for trained users to operate.
Spectralign beads are purchased from Spherotech and run on a weekly basis to monitor system performance.
Investigators must supply their own reagents. Users that are trained to self operate the instrument will need to provide their own tubes. This instrument will operate with microfuge or 12X75mm tubes.
