Apparently, American FACSFlow is toxic.  That marketed by BD in Canada (and
parts of Europe) is imported from Belgium, and cells sorted with this
solution are quite viable, as many of us north of the 49th parallel have
experienced.  This "duality" ... same name, same continent, different
product... may add to the confusion over toxic vs non-toxic FACSFlow.  Why
BD hasn't made this clear across the board is a mystery to me, as is why
this (non-toxic) formulation is not marketed in the USA (FDA?).  There is a
demand for it....

Just my $0.02 x 0.6439 worth.
