Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry Core Facility provides a broad range of equipment and services for the analysis and isolation of cells and other similar-sized particles based on fluorescent labeling. Four high-speed cell sorters are available to enable optimized sorting of highly purified cells, subcellular organelles or bacteria. The facility also supports a variety of analytical flow cytometers capable of performing basic to advanced multiparameter fluorescence analysis of many types of cell suspensions as well as analysis of intracellular signaling. An experienced staff of technical experts provides instruction in the design, execution and analysis of flow cytometry-based studies.
