Flow Cytometry Facility - Available Cytometers
The following cytometers 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.
Two 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.
The CyanADP from Beckman Coulter houses three lasers emitting at 405nm, 488nm and 640nm and is capable of detecting up to 9 fluorescent colours at a time. The high pressure fluidics and fast electronics of the CyanADP allow detection rates of up to 70K cells per second.
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.
