Flow Cytometry Analyzer
Our FACS analyzer (3-lasers and 8-colours) from Becton Dickinson is used for cell counting and biomarker detection. This is a laser based, biophysical technology employed for detections of physical and chemical characteristics of up to thousands of particles per second.
Flow Cytometry Facility at the Advanced Technology Platform Centre (ATPC)
A dedicated FACS facility exists at ATPC. The facility has 1) a 2-lasers and 4-colours FACS analyzer (Becton Dickinson), 2) a 3-lasers and 8-colours FACS analyzer (Becton Dickinson), 3) a 4-lasers and 10-colours FACS analyzer (Beckman Coulter), and 4) a high-end, 6-ways cell sorter (Becton Dickinson). The facility is designed for cell counting, sorting, biomarker detection and protein engineering, and multiparametric analysis of the physical and/or chemical characteristics of cells routinely used for the diagnosis of health disorders, and several applications in basic research, clinical practice and clinical trials.
