BIO-RAD Get More Out of Your Multicolor Panels

Designing multicolor panels for flow cytometry experiments can be a time-consuming process. The more markers you wish to include in your panel, the more difficult it is to find compatible fluorophores.

Experimental design can also be limited by the range of available fluorophores for your marker, the limitations of your flow cytometer and the abundance of your marker. Our new panel builder tool simplifies this process and enables you to quickly and easily build complicated panels.

Our short video tutorial explains how to optimize the use of the panel builder tool. As well as finding compatible fluorophores for your experiment, the tool has the capability to factor in best practices in flow cytometry such as optimizing for antigen density, using a dump channel and adding a viability dye. A more in-depth description of why you should consider including these best practices in your panel is discussed below.
