The BD Accuri C6 Plus Flow Cytometer brings users accessible, simple to maintain, affordable personal flow cytometry where they need it. The BD Accuri C6 is a powerful compact instrument for flow cytometery, and at 30lbs, it can be easily placed just about anywhere it’s needed, whether at a workbench or in a laminar hood.  This flow cytometer is rugged and designed to withstand harsh conditions, even when in motion, if the machine is anchored down, it could be used on a ship.

The BD Accuri C6 Plus Flow Cytometer comes with a 2-laser system, red and blue, with two light scatter detectors, and four fluorescence detectors with optical filters optimized for the detection of FITC, PE, PerCP- Cy5.5, and APC and including newer dyes such as Horizon Brilliant Blue 515. The BD Accuri C6 Plus can also analyze many variants of fluorescent proteins, such as GFP, YFP, and mCherry. The optical design of this flow cytometry system is fixed alignment that’s been preoptimized, making it one of the easiest to use.  In fact, the lasers and alignments are set and locked down at manufacturing, voltage adjustments to this flow cytometer are not required.

The BD Accuri C6 Plus Flow Cytometer features intuitive software interfaces, templates and reagent kits making it simple to use no matter the user’s skill set in flow cytometer biosciences. The BD Accuri C6 stores robust data collected that can be accessed for reanalysis at any time, over 7.s decades worth (16 million channels of digital data). This Flow Cytometer comes with a quick start guide to get user’s up and running right away, as well as intuitive software to help guide them through their work flow. Once data has been collected, it may be visualized at any scale, letting users set gates and regions they need with precision.  The software sends users easy to read and understand messages about the status of their runs.

The BD Accrui C6 Plus Flow Cytometer comes with the accessories pictured and listed in the includes section. This high-performance flow cytometry system is brand new with the original packaging, and our service team has thoroughly inspected the instrument for functionality. In addition, we provide current validations for both 6 and 8 peak tests, this flow cytometer has a clean bill of health.

We at The Lab World Group want to make sure you get the most from your investment so we are on hand to help troubleshoot installation and operation. Becoming familiar with your BD Biosciences Accuri prior to operation is key. Maintaining your flow cytometer will help extend the life and ensure proper operation. Before beginning with your flow cytometer, a quick system check will help to ensure you’re ready to go. Checking sheath fluid levels, the BD FACSclean and detergent bottle solutions and that there is proper capacity in the waste bottle, minimizes downtime so you can maximize your runs. Please note, when powering up this cytometry system, the power indicator light will flash blue, the traffic light will remain yellow as the laser warms, and the cytometer will flush lines with fresh sheath fluid. From start to finish this should take about 15 minutes.


Powering down your flow cytometry system will trigger an automatic clean fluidics cycle, which should take about 13 minutes. This process can be bypassed, please note however that this will impact start up as cleaning will still need to take place to ensure proper operation. This will trigger an extended cleaning that will take about 25 minutes. This flow cytometer is sold with a dell workstation, powered with Accuri C6 plus software to help acquire data, generate statistics, and analyze results. The workstation and the flow cytometer can be turned on in any order, it should not impact operation. All of our used lab equipment comes backed with our standard warranty. Should you have any questions about this instrument, please don't hesitate to contact us.
