The FACSCalibur is configured as follows:

  • FL1 Channel - Blue Laser (488nm) and 515-545nm Emission Filter (FITC, GFP, etc.)
  • FL2 Channel - Blue Laser (488nm) and 564-601nm Emission Filter (PE, PI, RFP, etc.)
  • FL3 Channel - Blue Laser (488nm) and 670LP Emission Filter (7-AAD, PerCP, etc)
  • FL4 Channel - Red Laser (635nm) and 653-669nm Emission Filter (APC, Cy5, etc.)
It is running the BS CellQuest Pro Software.

Beckman CytoFLEX S V2-B2-Y3-R2 Flow Cytometer (9 Detectors, 4 Lasers)

Here are the channels currently configured (in bold) the ones in italics can be utilized by repositioning the filters, which is relatively easy to do.
