Flow Cytometry and Imaging Facility

Our facility provides researchers with high-performance instrumentation and comprehensive support for performing flow cytometric analysis, cell sorting (FACS), confocal and wide-field microscopy.

The facility provides extensive instrument training including required theory, as well as guidance in experimental setup and design. Facility staff are available for troubleshooting and help with data analysis and interpretation. Data backup and archiving are also performed.
