8-color MACSQuant-10 (342W Borwell)

Optical Bench

Before you decide on a fluorochrome for a flow cytometric assay, you need to know:
  • the wavelengths of the lasers in the cytometer
  • the wavelengths of the filters in front of the photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in the cytometer
  • the absorption and fluorescence wavelengths of fluorochromes to be used

These can be simulated using the BD fluorescence spectrum viewer

Violet laser configuration:

MQ-10 violet laser filters

MQ violet fluors emission spectra



Blue laser configuration:

MQ-10 blue laser filters


Red laser configuration:

MQ-10 red laser filters

MQ-10 red laser fluor emission spectra
