Flow cytometry is a fast, flexible, multi-parametric technology for analysis of cells. Some flow cytometers, known as cell sorters, are also equipped with droplet generation/deflection modules that allow cells of interest to be recovered at high purity for additional experiments. Most flow cytometers use fluorescence detection, but imaging- and mass-spec based flow cytometers are becoming increasingly common. Impedance-based flow cytometers are widely used for accurate complete blood counts based on cell size and volume measurement. The WCM CLC Flow Cytometry Core Facility offers fluorescence flow cytometers, including two advanced cell sorting cytometers, and expert staff dedicated to excellence in flow cytometry studies. The facility also provides consultation on project design and data analysis, and offers educational workshops, seminars and training.
To sign up for an introductory on-site training session, please contact the core managers.
