AdID: 14676

Availability: In stock


BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer in Good
Condition with 90-Day Warranty

A tried and true flow cytometer still widely used today, the BD FACSCalibur was
the first system to provide standard multicolor analysis capabilities by incorporating
an alignment free optical design, interbeam compensation, and dual-laser technology.
Our technical staff inspected and powered on this FACSCalibur, confirming that this
instrument powers on without issue and enters “STNDBY” state.

We have a Macintosh PC workstation with software, card, and dongle available to
be added to this FACSCalibur if you don’t already have a workstation for this
instrument. Please contact us for more information if you’re interested in adding
this to your purchase.

Casing and Internals in Good Physical Condition

With 8,783.5 hours on this instrument, it was clearly well maintained and is still
in exceptionally good physical condition. Everything powers on without issue and
looks good under the hood. The casing has a couple noticeable scuff marks on the
front, but everything else looks nice.

Inspected by Technical Staff - Powers On Without Problem

This FACSCalibur was inspected and powered on by our technical staff, noting the
"LO" LED/button lights green and the "STNDBY" LED/Button lights amber. Pressing
the "MED", "HI" or "RUN" button will cause them to light. Pressing the "PRIME" button
causes it to light red and a solenoid "click" can be heard.

Testing beyond this point was not possible without the software registration code
which is required to operate the FACSCalibur from a PC workstation. More information
about the PC workstation below.

Macintosh PC with Software & Dongle Available

We have a Macintosh PC workstation with software, card, and dongle available to
be added to this FACSCalibur. However, the software cannot be used without the
software registration code. This registration code will need to be acquired from
the manufacturer.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us about adding this to your purchase. We’d be
happy to help get you up and running with this system.
