Calibur maintenance

Dear Group,

We have a question about FacsCalibur Sort maintenance.

We've had a couple of flow cells on our Sorting Caliburs replaced in the two
or three years we've been operating them.  One was replaced due to a crack
in it, and the other became irreversibly blocked.

We were wondering whether anyone else had similar experiences with Calibur
flow cells.  We're in a situation where BD have proposed a consolidated
service agreement  that does not cover the replacement of flow cells.  Any
feedback you could provide us about how often you Calibur users out there
(particularly heavy users) have had flow cells replaced would be very

Thanks in advance,
