BD Biosciences


The BD LSR II flow cytometer is fully configurable with one to four fixed-aligned, air-cooled lasers. By distributing a large number of fluorochromes over four lasers, you reduce spectral overlap and improve sensitivity. Fixed alignment provides consistent and stable day-to-day performance. The three new solid state lasers available on the BD LSR II flow cytometer—the Coherent® Sapphire™, Coherent VioFlame™ PLUS, and Lightwave Xcyte™— consume less power, produce less heat, and have a lower total cost over the life of the laser compared to gas-filled lasers.
