Sheath fluid is the solution that runs in a flow cytometer. Once the sheath fluid is running at the proper flow, the cells are injected into the center of the stream, at a slightly higher pressure. The principles of hydrodynamic focusing cause the cells to align, single file in the direction of flow. FACSFlow™ Sheath Fluid should be used to fill the sheath reservoir of FACS™ flow cytometer systems. The reservoir should be filled to approximately 75% capacity.
