The flow core has three BD LSR II cytometers available for your use. Starting with the Dodecapus and progressing to either the Behemoth or the Octopus each of these cytometers offers increased capacity. Additionally, since all three cytometers utilize DIVA acquisition software there is a level of redundancy across all three machines assuring that regardless of schedule conflicts or machine downtime one should have access to one machine or another at any time. All LSR’s have automatic compensation capability. For additional information on the use of the LSR’s go to Filter Configurations (.XLS) and/or LSR User Guidelines for in-depth, step-by-step instructions. You can also access the LSR Quick Notes for a condensed version on how to operate the LSR II.
