About

The CBMR Flow Cytometry Unit (FCU) provides cell counting, cell sorting and state-of-the-art software for data analysis. This facility also provides quality technical support ranging from advice in experimental design to data analysis.

The FCU is equipped with a dual-laser, 4-color FACScalibur cell analyzer (BD Biosciences) which provides flexibility to support a wide variety of research and clinical applications. Its applications include cell counting, determination of cell viability, detection of fluorescent subpopulations, cell immune phenotyping, cellular protein detection, apoptosis and cell cycle analysis. The triple-laser, 9-color FACSAria II cell sorter enables the isolation of specific cell population(s) from a complex mixture of cells.
