Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry Facility uses sophisticated instruments for cellular and particle analysis based upon the use of fluorescent probes and markers.

Flow Cytometry is a high speed laser based technology enabling users to generate multiparametric data about the size and shape of the proteins associated with cells or particles of interest. It is a powerful tool in many fields including immunology, stem cell science and cancer.

The facility currently operates one high speed sorter and two cell analysers and provides the following services on a fee-for-service model

  • Cell sorting
  • Cell analysis
  • Training for independent use of cell analysers
  • Advice on experimental design and data analysis.
