Flow Cytometer Measurement


  • 194.7 g FITC (provided in kit)
  • 10ml 1xPBS (phosphate buffered saline) 96 well plate
  • Competent cells (Escherichia coli strain DH5α)
  • LB (Luria Bertani) media with Chloramphenicol (stock concentration 25 mg/mL dissolved in EtOH), 1 ml Falcon tube for cell growth Incubator at 37°C, 1.5 ml eppendorf tubes for sample storage Ice bucket with ice,Pipettes, SpheroTech Rainbow Calibration Particles RCP-30-5A, CytoFlex flow cytometer

Devices (from InterLab Measurement Kit):

  • Positive control
  • Negative control
  • Device 1: J23101+I13504
  • Device 2: J23106+I13504
  • Device 3: J23117+I13504


  1. Open computer, click cytometer setting, load clean solution and system startup program for initialization.

  2. Load QC(Lot: 45065) falcon tube to do pre-tests.

  3. Load Rainbow beads, set FSC-A-SSA, FSC-A-FSC-H, FITC-A-Count.

  4. Mix 100ul overnight culture with PBS, load samples and examine the fluorescence.

  5. Close experiment and perform daily clean with ddH2O. Exit the software.
