Flow Cytometry Facility

The Harry Hood Bassett Flow Cytometry Center (FCC) is a College of Medicine Core Facility designed as a multi-user resource for the high speed analysis and sorting of cells. The FCC contains two state-of-the-art flow cytometers, the BD LSRII analytical cytometer and the BD FACS Aria high-speed cell sorter. Each instrument is equipped with 3 solid state lasers that allow multicolor analysis. This equipment was purchased through a National Institute of Health Shared Instrumentation Grant. Investigators who bring samples to the FCC for sorting or analysis pay a fee, which is used to partially offset operating expenses. The FCC provides professional consultation and assistance with equipment use, experimental design, and interpretation.
