Preparation of Test Suspensions Prepare all bead suspensions immediately prior to use.

After the instrument settings have been determined, BD Calibrite beads are used to evaluate instrument sensitivity. The 3-color kit contains these beads plus a PerCPlabeled bead. This allows cells to be distinguished from sample debris or background signal and for dimly stained cells to be distinguished from unstained cells. The FSC threshold is adjusted to a level that minimizes background signal if any.

Make sure to obtain a full drop of beads. The 2color kit contains three different types of BD Calibrite beads: Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, possibly resulting in Sensitivity Test failure.

The suspensions are stable for a longer period of time in Bead Dilution Buffer. Reagents are sufficient to perform 25 tests. Prepare a blood sample daily from a normal donor. The beads are used to adjust instrument settings, set fluorescence calibrtie, and check instrument sensitivity.



Optimizing Scatter Figure 1 shows a lysed whole blood LWB sample from a normal donor before and after optimization. Use the same staining method and run in parallel with the test samples. Record PMT voltages and channel separations obtained for each parameter in a daily log sheet.

Beads used beyond their stability begin to show a decrease in separation between unlabeled and labeled populations, resulting in Sensitivity Test failure. NOTE Different immunophenotyping preparation methods might require calubrite optimization procedures. Documents Flashcards Grammar caibrite. A thorough investigation of sucrose FL1, FL2, and FL3 fluorescence sensitivity is determined by measuring the mean channel separation claibrite the signal of the labeled beads and the unlabeled beads.

The flow cytometer has separate detectors or photomultiplier tubes PMTs that detect light signals. 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. Perform a Sensitivity Test using Tube B.

If you require any additional license to use this clibrite and do not have one, return this material, unopened, to BD Biosciences, Qume Drive, San Jose, CAand any money paid for the material will be refunded.

NOTE Invert bead vials completely when adding a drop to the tube. UV Bead lab with graph.

Do not dilute PerCP-Cy5. Weather and Climate for Educators. I dont have a photo of any of my first The drop should be cloudy, indicating the beads are properly mixed. A minimum channel separation must be met for the scatter and fluorescence parameters.

Next, the software adjusts fluorescence compensation using a mixed-bead suspension containing equal amounts of the appropriate BD Calibrite beads. One bottle is sufficient to perform 25 tests. The decrease in separation for a wide variety of bead lots has been within 2. Concentration values are listed in the following table: How to make the beaded number line. The channel separation and PMT voltages for each of the four parameters should be maintained in a daily log to track instrument performance.


Generate a printout of the Sensitivity Test results and keep the printouts in a calibritte book. Following PMT and compensation adjustment, the software performs a Sensitivity Test using the appropriate mixed-bead suspension.

Both scatter and fluorescent light signals are detected. BD Calibrite beads are for in vitro diagnostic use. In some cases the software may not be able to automatically set up the instrument. See Figure 1 through Figure 5 for examples.

Because BD 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 beade. The light scatter sensitivity is determined by the amount of channel separation between the mixed bead population and instrument background signal.

Always refer to the appropriate application note or reagent IFU. Notice populations with a lower FSC signal than lymphocytes debris, for example can be excluded by increasing the FSC threshold level.
