FC 500 Features

More flexibility for your cytometry research

With flexible testing capabilities, powerful software and a user-friendly interface, FC 500 systems offer real value for your lab. Each system is backed by Beckman Coulter’s unsurpassed reputation for quality and service.

Automated cellular and bead-based multicolor analysis

With high throughput for routine items, and unmatched flexibility for research, the FC 500 MPL helps you do your best science, your way.

Thousands of reagents from a single source

Choose from more than 1,000 reagents or use our customization services to precisely tailor your research applications. Our customization capabilities encompass antibody purification, a variety of Alexa Dyes, multicolor combination and conjugations using:
  • FITC, PE, ECD,
  • PC5, PC5.5, PC7
  • APC, APC-Cy7

Examine more antibodies than ever before

With capability to perform automated 5-color analysis using either single or dual laser excitation, the FC 500 MPL provides flexible application design and evaluation of cells under investigation for Activation (CD69)–an important component in immunity regulation research.

Tube- and plate-based formats on the same system

With the flexible multi-platform loader, only the FC500 MPL accommodates 12 x 75mm tubes and 24- or 96-well plates on the same system. Combined with an auto-setup feature, the newest FC500 provides unparalleled adaptability in application setup.

Digital signal processing

Combined with a robust optical system, the FC500 MPL’s digital signal processing maintains stable alignment with a single beam path for excellent, drift-free linearity. The real-time feature delivers broad analysis flexibility including the option to recompensate after acquisition.

Increased throughput and sample-to-result turnaround time

Specialized, plate-based acquisition and analysis software improves sample-to-result times and throughput. The simplified data display also makes for rapid hit detection. UNSPSC: 41116015; IVC Regulatory Status; Optimized for FCM. For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
