Lab closures caused by COVID-19 – Long-term shutdown quick reference guide for BD flow cytometers

The COVID-19 crisis has led to many labs and research institutes shutting down. However, once the crisis is over, we want you to get back up and running as quickly as possible. To ensure safety and instrument performance, flow cytometers must be shut down using the correct procedures during periods of inactivity lasting more than one week.  With this in mind, we have created a long-term shutdown quick reference guide for BD flow cytometers.

This guide contains instructions for performing a long-term shutdown for the following BD instruments.

  • BD Accuri™ C6, C6 Plus and BD FACSVia™ Cytometers
  • BD FACSAria™ Family of Cell Sorters
  • BD FACSCalibur™ Cytometers
  • BD FACSCanto™ Family of Cytometers
  • BD FACSLyric™ and BD FACSVerse™ Cytometers
  • BD FACS™ Lyse Wash Assistant Systems
  • BD FACSMelody™ Cell Sorters
  • BD FACS™ Sample Prep Assistant Systems
  • BD Influx™ and BD FACSJazz™ Cell Sorters
  • BD LSRFortessa™, BD FACSCelesta™ and BD FACSymphony™
