We perform daily Cytometer Setup & Tracking (CST) on our cytometers using BD CS&T research beads to track performance metrics such as detection efficiency, standard deviation of electronic noise, laser current, and optical background.
If there is a major alteration over time, we troubleshoot the problem to solve it as promptly as possible.
We also run Rainbow 8 peak Beads (RB) as a routine calibration of the flow cytometers to evaluate the linearity of the system.
These RB 8 peak beads are also specific for following the EuroFlow(TM) standardization guidelines.
Please contact us if you want to check the CST or RB values for a particular date.
