CORE FACILITIES: FACS & IMAGING
The FACS & Imaging Core Facility is home to 31 bookable resources, including wide-field and confocal microscopes, flow cytometry analyzers and sorters, shared histology equipment, and PC workstations for data analysis.
We provide additional services such as software training, access to analysis software, and help with experimental planning and post-acquisition analysis.
Flow cytometry (FACS)
Flow Cytometry is a technology that simultaneously measures and analyzes multiple physical characteristics of single cells or other particles as they move in a stream of liquid and pass a beam of light.
BD FACSAria IIIu
High-speed cell sorter and analyzer with 4 lasers and 14 fluorescent parameters.
BD FACSCanto II
Analyzer with 3 lasers and 8 fluorescent parameters.
Analyzer with 5 lasers and 18 fluorescent parameters.
Microscopy is the technology of using microscopes to view samples and objects that cannot be seen with the unaided eye.
Nikon Eclipse Ci
Upright microscope for bright field and polarized light microscopy
Inverted fluorescent microscope with 2 cameras.
Spinning disc confocal Visitron CSU X1
Inverted spinning disc microscope with 4 lasers and 3 cameras. Equipped with incubation chamber for live-cell imaging.
Multiphoton microscope Leica SP8-MP-OPO
