PolyAn’s beads can be used as valuable tools for achieving accurate and consistent results within a flow cytometry study, and generating comparable data between instruments and laboratories. The bead populations are valuable tools for assay development.
PolyAn’s PMMA beads with narrow fluorescence coefficients of variation (CVs) are used for Q&B (alignment, non-fluorescent and dimed population in addition to the bead fluorescence population of choice for background and sensitivity). They are also used as compensation controls including antibody binding and help estimate the cell size.
Addressable bead populations with different intensities of fluorescence and/or size can be used for the development of multiplexed suspension arrays. PolyAn’s multiplex beads can be used in flow cytometers as well as in fluorescence microscope based imaging systems (Scanning Cytometry, SCM).
PolyAn offers calibration slides for microscope based imaging systems that are used to standardize measurements of fluorescence intensity based on immobilized fluorescent calibration beads.
PolyAn’s bio-compatible PMMA bead suspensions can be used in conjunction with living cells to help process cell assays more quickly by indication of the correct focus level in fluorescence microscopy.
Fluorescent microspheres are useful for fluid tracing, cell tracking, or phagocytosis studies. PolyAn offers a broad portfolio of beads at different sizes and a wide selection of fluorophores.
