Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry technology can be used to measure intrinsic cell characteristics such as size, shape and granularity and extrinsic cell characteristics such as DNA, internal and external receptors. This has many applications in humans, animals, plants and microorganisms with the most common applications in cell cycle, apoptosis/necrosis, ploidy determination, immunophenotyping, protein expression and Ca2+  concentration.

Instrumentation

Beckman Coulter Epics XL-MCL
This instrument allows simultaneous measure of FSC, SSC and up to 4 colours using a 488nm laser and has an automated sample loader that permits a throughput of 100 samples/hour.

Beckman Coulter FC500
The next generation of the Beckman Coulter Epics XL-MCL is able to analyse up to 5 colours using a 488nm laser and has an automated sample loader.

Beckman Coulter Cyan™ADP
Two instruments are available, each with three lasers: one with 488nm (blue), 561nm (green) and 635nm (red)  and the other one with 405 nm (UV), 488nm (blue) and 635nm (red). This allows us to detect up to 11 parameters at the same time and offers complete compensation and analysis rates of up to 50,000 events/second.

BD Accuri C6
Flow Cytometer® System has a high specification with 2 lasers, 2 scatter and 4 fluorescence detectors. Designed to work well with current protocols and reagents, the C6 is a high performance flow cytometer, simplified..  Extremely easy to use, it is an ideal tool for less experienced users. It is portable and can be easily moved to other laboratories.
