The BD Accuri C6 flow cytometer is easy to use and allows student access to the science of flow cytometry. The C6 uses two lasers, red and blue, to record events and has 4 fluorescence channels for a wide range of fluorescence detection.
Professors can request their students to be trained on the Accuri Student Cytometer by sending an email to Sandra Burnett. The training process happens in 2, 1 hour classes with Dr. Burnett and provides basic information to begin using the cytometer.
The software is easy to use and can be downloaded to any BYU computer free of charge. Just ask the technician for a CD copy of the software.
