BD FACSDiva Software

Robust features from setup through analysis

BD FACSDiva™ software provides one of the most complete and robust feature sets available for flow cytometry.


BD FACSDiva v8.0.1 Software

BD FACSDiva v8.0.1 software continues to provide powerful index sorting, along with more routine software operation features including overlays, undo/redo, and multiple copying and pasting of all worksheet elements. This version runs on the Windows® 7 32-bit operating system. A complete list of BD FACSDiva software features is listed in the following specification table.

The index sorting feature enables laboratories to sort cells into single wells of plates, and also easily identify them on plots, in statistics views, and in a detailed results file.
