The following vendors sell beads specifically designed for fluorescence overlap compensation using fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies supplied by the investigator. Beckman Coulter and eBioscience have a single product that accepts a broad range of species. ThermoFisher and Bection Dickinson have products matched to specific species. Becton Dickinson's product requires the antibodies to be specific to the anti-kappa light chain while Beckman Coulter, eBioscience, and ThermoFisher do not.
