The BD Biosciences Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer is easy to use and simple to maintain. Small and easily transportable, the Accuri C6 is small enough to easily fit on a benchtop, and can be placed in a laminar flow hood.

The system is equipped with a blue laser and a red laser, two scatter detectors, and four fluorescence detectors with interference filters optimized for the detection of FITC, PE, PerCP-Cy5.5, and APC. A compact optical design, fixed alignment, and pre-optimized detector settings make the system easier to use. A unique low-pressure pumping system drives the fluidics. A sheath-focused core enables event rates of up to 10,000 events per second and a sample concentration over 5 x 106 cells per mL.

BD Accuri C6 software has an intuitive user interface designed with the researcher in mind. The tabbed interface provides quick access to the collection, analysis, and statistics functions. Analysis can be performed on the BD Accuri C6 cytometer or can be exported into third-party programs such as FCS Express.
