Flow Cytometry Facility


The Flow-Cytometry (FACS) facility is located on the ninth floor of the Hunter North building. This facility provides analyses of up to 7 parameters in eukaryotic cell populations and sorts cells under sterile conditions. These analyses can be used to identify and isolate rare cell populations, determine chromosome ploidy in individual cells, study apoptosis, and study cell-signaling among other applications.





    • FACSCalibur ( Flow cytometer )

      FACS Calibur is a bench top analyzer consisting of air-cooled Argon laser emitting at 488 nm and 633 nm diode laser. It can provide analyses up to 6 parameters and up to 4-colors.

    • FACSVantage ( Flow cytometer sorter )

      FACS Vantage is a sorter consisting of Helium-Neon (HeNe) air-cooled laser emitting at 633 nm and an Enterprise II water-cooled laser emitting at both 488 nm and Ultra Violet (UV). It can provide analyses up to 7 parameters and up to 5-colors.


    • Instrument Training ( Training service )

      Training of faculty and students in instrument training/maintenance.
