Both scatter and fluorescent light signals are detected. The 2color kit contains three different types of BD Calibrite beads: Reagents are sufficient to perform 25 tests.

All forms are provided in stabilized, buffered saline with 0. Beads clibrite beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, possibly resulting in Sensitivity Test failure. Instrument settings might need to be manually optimized before running cells. Preparation of Test Suspensions Prepare all bead suspensions immediately prior to use.

Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, resulting in Sensitivity Test failure.

For information on use, refer to the appropriate instrument manual. A minimum channel separation must be met for the scatter and fluorescence parameters.


BD Calibrite PerCP-Cy5.5 Beads

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.

The suspensions are stable for a longer period of time in Bead Dilution Buffer. See Figure 1 through Figure 5 for examples. Adjust fluorescence compensation using Tube B. The FSC threshold is adjusted to a level that minimizes background signal if any.

BD Calibriteā„¢ Beads

Label two 12 x mm polystyrene tubes Tube A and Tube B. Adjustment is similar beada PerCP-Cy5. Mix bead vials by gentle inversion or very gentle vortexing prior to use. Optimization and Quality Control Because leucocytes have different optical properties than BD Calibrite beads, optimization of instrument settings with cell samples is important. Because Veads Calibrite beads simulate unstained cells and cells that have been stained labeled with fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies, the beads are used to adjust the instrument settings before cell samples are run on the flow cytometer.

It might be necessary to adjust the FSC and SSC amplifiers so that calibriye leucocyte populations are on scale, and to adjust compensation and threshold settings see Figure 1.

The drop should be cloudy, indicating the beads are properly mixed. NOTE Different immunophenotyping preparation methods might require different optimization procedures. See Optimization and Quality Control on page 4.


How to make the beaded number line. See examples in Optimization and Quality Control on page 4. If this occurs, manually adjust the settings.

For further assistance, contact your BD Biosciences service representative. The channel separation and PMT voltages for each of the four parameters should be maintained in a daily log to track cakibrite performance.

After the instrument settings have been determined, BD Calibrite beads are used to evaluate instrument sensitivity. This instructions for use IFU provides information for two- three- and four-color setup. Following PMT and compensation adjustment, the software performs a Sensitivity Calihrite using the appropriate mixed-bead suspension.


Next, calibfite software adjusts fluorescence compensation using a mixed-bead suspension containing equal amounts of the appropriate BD Calibrite beads.
