The Flow Cytometry facility at School of Life Sciences offers researchers with state of the art technologies in the field of Flow Cytometry. The facility is also available to industry and commercial units.
The Flow Cytometry facility undertakes analysis and sorting of cell/organelle populations of interest for further molecular and functional studies. It is a powerful tool in research and clinical laboratory which emphasizes on cell related state of art technologies. The facility is best utilized for the isolation and study of specific cell types, measuring absolute number of cells, percentage of live cells and other characteristics of cells such as immunophenotyping, stem cell enumeration, cell cycle analysis, ploidy determination, apoptosis and necrosis, mitochondrial aspects including many other properties of the cells.
