About

Broadly speaking, the Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility within the School of Life Sciences provides three main services:

  • Training and support in the use of the flow cytometer analysers: The majority of researchers who contact us wish to perform their own sample analysis, and in this instance we provide high quality training and on-going technical support to enable them to do so.
  • Sample analysis service: For those researchers who have limited numbers of experiments to perform or who are in urgent need of sample analysis and do not want to undergo training, facility staff are able to provide detailed protocols for sample preparation, perform sample and data analysis and report the results back to the researcher.
  • Cell sorting: Facility staff perform all cell sorting applications, and are on-hand to provide technical support for sample preparation and sort design of any kind when needed.

A full guide to using the facilities available can be found here. If you would like to make use of any of our facilities please contact facility staff.
