Flow Cytometers

Flow cytometry can simultaneously measure and analyze multiple parameters of single particles, generally cells, as they are carried by a stream of fluid and pass a beam of light. The measured properties include the relative size of a particle, the relative granularity and internal complexity, and the relative fluorescence intensity. The particles can be sorted and collected based on their different properties and can be used for further analysis and process.

The Health Sciences Core Facility has three flow cytometers, which provide high-quality, multi-parameter cell analysis and cell sorting.
