CytoFlex Flow Cytometer Application Notes

CREATING AN EXPERIMENT 1. Open the “New Experiment” dialog box in the File menu (Figure 2).

Figure 2. CytExpert File submenu options. 2.

Choose a location for the experiment file.

3. Open the Detector Configuration window and verify that software (SW) and hardware (HW) configurations match. 4. Under the Settings tab, select “Set Channel” and de-select the channels not in use. This is allowed since we only require excitation from one laser, and detection only from light scatter and the one-color fluorescence (PerCP) channel (Figure 3).

Figure 3. CytExpert Detector Configuration submenu options. Deselecting channels allows more total events to be acquired. Disadvantages are that further exploration of endogenous fluorophores (chloroplasts etc.) in relationship to the nuclei will not be possible.


Open the “Acq. Settings” window.

A Select the “Gain” tab. Adjust the gain settings to correspond to those of Figure 4:
