The Cytomics FC 500 MPL is a flow cytometry system designed for in vitro diagnostics for the qualitative and quantitative measurement of biological and physical properties of cells and other particles. These properties are measured when the cells pass through one or two laser beams in single-file. The Beckman FC 500 MPL flow cytometer can simultaneously measure forward scatter, side scatter, and five fluorescent dyes. The instrument can perform correlated multiparameter analyses of individual cells.
Beckman offers a library of over 1,000 reagents for use with the FC 500 MPL system and can also customize reagents for applications including antibody purification, a variety of Alexa Dyes, multicolor combination and conjugations using FITC, PE, ECD, PC5, PC5.5, PC7, APC, APC-Cy7. The addition of the far red diode operating at 635 extends the functionality to highly sensitive Cy5 and similar dyes.
Please note that this unit is being sold without software. While we are able to test certain pieces of analytical equipment using software in our shop, most software licenses are non-transferrable. New software should be purchased directly from the manufacturer by each lab installing the instrument and we price the equipment with this expectation. Please call or email us for more details.
All of our equipment is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
