The LSRFortessa and Fortessa X-20 are available for use by all researchers who have received appropriate training.
To request training in the use of the Fortessa X-20 or LSRFortessa, please contact Anna Raper.
It is of great benefit to both the trainer and the trainee to have an initial discussion prior to training. This allows the trainer to determine:
- What you wish to measure, achieve, from your experiment
- What type of samples you are running
- What fluorochromes you plan to use
- Whether you have the correct controls, for set up, compensation and gating strategies
Following this, an introduction to the instruments will be provided; this will take approximately 2 hours and will be followed by an assisted/supervised session.
Instruction manuals for each of the analysis cytometers are available within the Facility, and also online from the BD website.
