Flow cytometry offers the ability for a user to either analyse or isolate cells based on their phenotypic or functional properties. These properties can be defined in a number of ways – from extracellular or intracellular markers and proteins through to DNA content and cellular processes such as Calcium flux and membrane potential. Fluorescences used to detect these properties cover the spectrum from UV to far-red and are constantly increasing in versatility.

The purpose of the facility is to provide state of the art Flow Cytometry equipment, training and expertise. All of the analysers can be booked and used by trained personnel.
