Flow Cytometry Facility

The Flow Cytometry Facility contains a BD Influx sorter cytometer that enables the identification, enumeration and sorting of cells or particles based on size and subtle differences in their optical signatures. The novelty of this state-of-the-art instrument is its unparalleled modular system, sensitivity and sorting power, provided by its manual adjustment of detectors to distinguish varying ranges of spectral bands, fluorescence intensities and other optical parameters (e.g., polarized forward scatter). 



The BD Influx can analyze and sort many cell or particle types based on size and the detection of fluorescent markers (autofluorescence or fluorescent dye). The sorting technique with BD Influx is widely used for subsequent analysis, tissue or cell culture, etc. in a variety of fields.
