FACS Platform

Flow Cytometry Analysis and Fluorecence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS)

Flow cytometry enables measurement of fluorescence intensity of particles (cells) in a liquid stream. Analysis of live and fixed cells may be based on size, granularity/complexity, fluorescent proteins, cell surface antigen expression, intracellular antigen expression, DNA content. Flow cytometry is ideal for multiplexing targets using multiple stainings and dyes. 

We have an instrument for flow cytometry analysis and sorting: 

Cell sorter: BD FACS Aria III
3 LASER instrument: 488 nm, 561 nm, 633 nm; 10 fluorescence channels. The FACS Aria may be used for analysis or for physically separating out cell populations based on their fluorescence labelling.

• Purity sort
• Enrichment of rare populations
• Single cell sort

The FACS facility is available for everyone to use.
