Flow Cytometry Facility - Analyzers
The following analyzers are available for our researchers. Please contact the flow cytometry facility staff to schedule an introduction or if you have any questions regarding the services provided.
Three identically configured five laser, twenty parameter LSRFortessas (BD Biosciences) are available for trained users. These cytometers offer high sensitivity detection of up to 18 fluorescent labels, at 20K cells per second, paired with easy to use intuitive software. Excitation lasers emit at 355nm, 405nm, 488nm 561nm and 640nm.
We have one CytoFLEX with the 488nm and 640nm lasers and up to 5 fluorescence colours plus two CytoFLEX S with 4 lasers (405nm, 488nm, 561nm 640nm) and up to 13 fluorescence colours. The CytoFLEX has an intuitive software and allows for multicolour experiments with high performances alongside a small footprint.
The AccuriC6 cytometer by BD is configured with two lasers and four fluorescence detection channels. Its simple and intuitive design makes it especially advantageous for new users and simple, not multi-colour experiments.
