Hi Phil-

I use dH2O and I've seen no ill effects compared to standard sheath fluid,
or any particular contamination issues etc- we look at standard human and
murine cells- maybe it may become an issue with other cell types or bacteria

Also, I fill the 20L Sheath Container provided by Dako so there are
obviously no sensor or connections issues.

All the best

Subject: Sheath fluid for CYAN ADP

What sources of sheath fluid are most people using for the CYAN ADP? Dako is
having problems with their supplier and we are looking for alternative
sources. If another vendor is used, how do you handle the sheath sensor
(scale) and connections?
