Access to BD Biosciences FACSAria Web site
(Contains information as well as video)
BD Biosciences Flourescence Spectrum Viewer
This applet will help you determine which fluorochomes to
consider using for your sorting experiments. It takes a few
seconds to load, so be patient. Under "Cytometer", use
the pull down menu to select "FACSAria". You can toggle
excitation and emission spectra on/off, or magnify the spectral
area by dragging the cursor left to right. Double clicking on
the spectra will return to normal magnification.
Link to Fluorochrome Table - Salk Flow Cytometry Facility
This is an excellent table of fluorochromes which contains
excitation and emission maxima, as well as molecular weights
Exitation and Emission Spectra for BD Living Colors(TM)
This site contains spectral characteristics of GFP and related proteins.
BD Living Colors FAQs - Multi-color Labeling
A useful site containing questions and answers concerning the use of
BD fluorescent probes. Check out the links along the right panel.
