BD India, a segment of BD (Becton Dickinson and Company), a global medical technology company, conducted a scientific exchange and networking event to celebrate the 50 years of FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorter) innovation. The event was attended by prominent flow cytometrists and PARADIGM club members, who shared their clinical and research journey with BD flow cytometers. They also discussed the key milestones of flow cytometry technology over the last five decades and its impact on various fields of science and medicine.
BD India Unveils the Latest Innovation in Flow Cytometry
At the event, BD India also unveiled the BD FACSDiscover™ S8 Cell Sorter with BD CellView™ Image Technology and BD SpectralFX™ Technology, which is the company’s latest innovation in the field of cytometry. The flow cytometer expands the power of cell analysis and sorting to new dimensions by combining spectral flow cytometry with real-time spatial and morphological insights-empowering scientists to address previously impossible-to-answer questions.
The BD FACSDiscover™ S8 Cell Sorter is designed to enable high-throughput, high-content, and high-sensitivity cell sorting and imaging for a wide range of applications, such as single-cell genomics, immunology, oncology, and stem cell research. The BD CellView™ Image Technology provides high-resolution images of every sorted cell, while the BD SpectralFX™ Technology enables spectral unmixing and compensation-free analysis of up to 30 parameters.
BD India Showcases Other Cutting-Edge Products in Flow Cytometry
In addition to the BD FACSDiscover™ S8 Cell Sorter, BD India also showcased other cutting-edge products in flow cytometry, such as the BD FACSDuet™ Premium Sample Preparation System and the BD Rhapsody™ HT Single-Cell Analysis System.
The BD FACSDuet™ Premium Sample Preparation System provides pre-analytical automation with standardization to drive consistency and workflow efficiency in the lab. The system integrates sample preparation and flow cytometry analysis in a single platform, reducing manual steps and errors.
The BD Rhapsody™ HT Single-Cell Analysis System is a high-throughput solution for single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) that enables the analysis of thousands of cells in parallel. The system leverages the BD Rhapsody™ Express Software and the BD Rhapsody™ Cartridges to simplify the workflow and generate high-quality data.
