RRC-FCS: Data Archiving
Listmode (or raw data) and ELITE histogram files are generally saved to the hard drive of the instrument's computer, but periodically, the files will have to be removed to free up space for new data.
Except for the LSR and FACSCalibur, we can no longer allow the use of user-supplied removable media due to the high risk of infection from malware (i.e. computer viruses, worms, trojans, etc.). On the LSR and FACSCalibur, users may continue to transfer listmode and document files directly to supported removable media (e.g. USB flash / hard drives).
