What is flow cytometry?

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique that allows you to test multiple parameters of your sample (i.e immunofluorescence analysis, cell-cycle and proliferation analysis, analysis of transfected fluorescent tags and more) by fluorescence readout. The main advantages of this technique are accuracy and speed. You can analyse millions of cells in a matter of minutes and gather fluorescent data for every single cell you run through the analyser.

What we do

The Don Mason Facility of Flow Cytometry (previously known as the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology Flow Cytometry Facility) offers access to state-of-the-art flow cytometers and provides a bespoke cell sorting service, as well as comprehensive support on panel design, flow data analysis and cell sorting.
