C6 Flow Cytometer® Instrument

Unit Description

The Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer® is equipped with one blue and one red laser, forward and side scatter detectors, and four fluorescence detectors with interference filters optimized for the detection of FITC, PE, PerCP-Cy5.5, and  APC. Although not an exhaustive list, other common fluorochromes that can be used with the C6 include GFP, Alexa fluors, Texas Red, and Mitotracker Red.

The C6 is highly versatile and has many applications in immunophenotyping, bacteria analysis, cell cycle analysis, proliferation assays, apoptosis, DNA Analysis, gene expression, viability, absolute cell counts, intracellular cytokines, membrane potential, yeast and algae analysis, and phagocytosis studies.

The C6 has a fully digital data collection system, allowing complete flexibility to display and analyze data post-collection, without any alteration of your original data file. In addition, it allows you to export CFlow files into most 3rd party flow cytometry software programs including FCS Express and FlowJo.

Finally, Accuri developed the C6 to use the same reagents currently used by leading flow cytometers to allow for ease of transfer of existing protocols developed on different flow cytometers. Since the C6 fluidics system is non-pressurized, any brand of sample tube that is 12x75 mm or smaller can be used. This includes microfuge tubes and tubes made of polypropylene or polystyrene.
