Refer to the information appropriate to the instrument setup you are performing. It might be necessary to adjust the FSC and SSC amplifiers so that all leucocyte populations are on scale, and to adjust compensation and threshold settings see Figure 1.

NOTE Over a period of time, the fluorescence separation might decrease. Preparation of Test Suspensions Prepare all bead suspensions immediately prior to use.

The beads are used to adjust instrument settings, set fluorescence compensation, and check instrument sensitivity. Generate a printout of the Sensitivity Test results and keep the printouts in a log book.

Wellington, Auckland, New Zealand bdbiosciences. Bsads 1 through Figure 4 show examples of optimization for two- three- and four-color beas. The flow cytometer has separate detectors or photomultiplier tubes PMTs that detect light signals. Adjustment is similar for PerCP-Cy5. The drop should be cloudy, indicating the beads are properly mixed.

See Optimization and Quality Control on page 4. If you require any additional license to use this product and do not have one, return this material, unopened, to BD Biosciences, Qume Drive, San Jose, CAand any money paid calibirte the material will be refunded.


Both scatter and fluorescent light signals are detected. Record PMT voltages and channel separations obtained for each parameter in a daily log sheet. The FSC threshold is adjusted to a level that minimizes background signal if any. Weather and Climate for Educators. Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, resulting in Sensitivity Test failure.

Always refer to the appropriate application note or reagent IFU.

BD Calibrite™ Beads

Notice populations with a lower FSC signal than lymphocytes debris, for example can be excluded by increasing the FSC threshold level. Label two 12 x mm polystyrene tubes Tube A and Tube B. Make sure to obtain a full drop of beads. Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. NOTE Different immunophenotyping preparation methods might require different optimization procedures.

Compensation adjustments for FL1, FL2, and FL3 correct for spectral overlap by shifting the labeled bead calibrrite so they are aligned with the corresponding unlabeled bead populations. This allows cells to be distinguished from sample debris or background signal and for dimly stained cells to be distinguished from unstained cells. The channel separation and PMT voltages for each of the four parameters should be maintained in a daily log to track instrument performance.

BD Calibrite™ – BD Calibrite PerCP-Cy Beads – BD Biosciences

Prepare a blood sample daily from a normal donor. In some cases the software may not be able to automatically beada up the instrument. The suspensions are stable for a longer period of time in Bead Dilution Buffer.

The light bezds sensitivity is determined by the amount of channel separation between the mixed bead population and instrument background signal. Optimize instrument settings following two-color setup using a blood sample stained with any combination of monoclonal antibodies that identifies separate non-overlapping cell populations, such as FITClabeled and PE-labeled monoclonal antibodies.


Corrective action might be required if the average separation varies by more than 2. Adjust fluorescence compensation using Tube B. Optimizing Scatter Figure 1 shows a lysed whole blood LWB sample from a normal donor before and after optimization. Observations of greater variations on a single instrument can be indicative of instrument instability.

FL1, FL2, and FL3 fluorescence sensitivity is determined by measuring the mean channel separation between the beadx of the labeled beads and the unlabeled beads.

beaes Optimization and Quality Control Because leucocytes have different optical properties than BD Calibrite beads, optimization of instrument settings with cell samples is important. How to make the beaded number line. Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, possibly resulting in Sensitivity Test failure.

One bottle is ca,ibrite to perform 25 tests. Do not dilute PerCP-Cy5. Forward scatter FSC and side scatter SSC instrument sensitivity are measured by the mean channel separation between the light-scatter signal of the beads and background signal electronic and optical.

Reagents are sufficient to perform 25 tests.

See examples in Optimization and Quality Control on page 4. Daily use is recommended for monitoring instrument performance over time.
