Flow Cytometry Particles

Optimize flow cytometer performance

Ensure optimal flow cytometer instrument performance by using Thermo Scientific™ Flow Cytometry beads for calibration, alignment, counting and instrument set-up to ensure flow and optical stability and for developing assays used for the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 24 different analytes within a sample. These open-platform beads not only work on any brand of flow cytometer, they provide confidence that the instrument is consistently delivering accurate data between instruments, labs and experiments when sizing, sorting, isolating and analyzing cells.

Key Applications

  • Calibration to ensure the laser and optics are performing to specification
  • Alignment to ensure the laser and flow cell are properly aligned
  • Absolute counting for proper capture of cells
  • Measuring multiple analytes per test
