Core BD Symphony A5

BD Symphony configuration

The BD FACSymphony™ A5 flow cytometer is a 5-laser benchtop instrument with the ability to acquire up to 30 parameters. It uses fixed-alignment lasers that transmit light through a flow cell to cascade detector arrays. The Symphony has room to grow, as it is upgradeable with up to 7 lasers and up to 50 parameters.

Using the familiar Diva software, the Symphony has a very close similarity to the control features of the BD Celesta. This analyzer is available for self-use for investigators who have completed the training session described on our training page.

The Symphony is replacing the 5-laser LSRII "Donald" that is obsolete and will be removed when it is no longer repairable.
