Details -- Caliber (serial number E0176)

This FACSCaliber has taken a backseat to the newer, more productive Cantos.  However, the Caliber has been a mainstay in the world of flow cytometry for years and it has true devotees.  This machine was manufactured in March 1998 in put into service at the CIC in January 1999.  It currently has over 30,000 hrs of usage.

 

 

Maintenance:

The CIC flow facility is run by Shawn “Trip” Gill, a Systems Engineer with 15 years of experience working with BD flow cytometers.

Basic reagents (sheath fluid, shutdown solution, FACSClean solution) are all BD products used within BD guidelines.
