BD FACSCanto Clinical

Data integration speeds results, improves reproducibility

Designed to address the needs of today’s busy clinical lab, the BD FACSCanto™ system has a proven track record of reducing hands-on time and improving reliability of results. A high degree of automation and quality control helps save time, reduce cost, and improve reproducibility of results.


Setup and tracking by Levey-Jennings graphs for data integrity and reproducibility

Cytometer settings are tracked over time by Levey-Jennings graphs to monitor cytometer performance. Adjustments are made automatically to ensure consistent data integrity and reproducible results from day to day and experiment to experiment. Integrated quality control features further support data integrity by notifying operators if an assay fails predefined standards.

Application-specific software modules in software for consistency and standardization

BD FACSCanto™ clinical software includes specific application modules optimized for use with specific IVD reagent kits. The modules feature automated gating, calculations, and report generation to deliver a consistent, reproducible, and standardized analysis.

Integration with workflow software and laboratory information systems to improve data quality

As a leading provider of tools for flow cytometry, BD Biosciences is committed to offering comprehensive, innovative software solutions, including third-party solutions that support application-specific customer requirements.

For example, optional BD FACSLink™ laboratory information system (LIS) software easily connects the BD FACSCanto system with an existing customer LIS to enable direct, bi-directional transfer of data. The software simplifies laboratory workflow by customizing data reporting, securing validation, and transferring data to reduce manual transcription. The solution automates the process from request to reporting to help reduce errors and improve data quality and laboratory productivity.
