Flow Cytometry logo

Flow Cytometry is a powerful, laser-based technology, which can be used to analyse the physical, chemical and biological properties of individual cells or cellular components, and it permits the analysis of millions of cells in suspension, in a relatively small amount of time. 

The facility consists of two cell sorter and two Flow Cytometry analysers, in addition we can also provide access and support for FlowJo analysis software. The facility also houses the Chromium 10X single cell instrument.
