Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility

Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility

Flow cytometry allows for the simultaneous measurement of multiple physical and/or chemical properties of single cells or biological particles through the use of fluorescent probes. Located in the Lyman-Duff building, the Flow Cytometry Facility is available to external businesses and research institutes.

Flow cytometry is commonly used for cell cycle analysis, immunophenotyping, cell proliferation or cell death assays, chromosome analysis, tracking of gene transfer and cytokine detection by intracellular staining or cytometric bead array.
