Cell Sorter Facility (Science Hill)
An NIH sponsored shared resource
We provide flow cytometric analysis and sorting including instrumentation, technical support, training and consultation.
Flow cytometry is a technology that simultaneously measures and then analyzes multiple physical characteristics of single particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Sorting allows us to capture and collect cells of interest for further analysis. Once collected, the cells can be analyzed microscopically, biochemically, or functionally.
