Nona Sheila R. Agawin asked:
" is it always very hard to clean the flow cytometer after passing samples with
fluorescent beads ?"

I have found that small beads (< 4 micron) can stay in the instrument for a long
time appearing in multiple samples after the beads were run.  Running ethanol
after the beads seems to help push them through more quickly.
