The CND Flow Cytometry Core Facility
The ARCND Flow Cytometry Core Facility is a multi-purpose, multi-instrument, multi-optional cell sorting and analyzing facility. We have 3 - BD FACSAria cell sorters and 4 multi-laser analyzers. Each sorter can sort cells based on 8 or 13 parameters, and sort the desired populations at one cell per well into plates or upto 4 tubes simultaneously. We have 4 analyzers ranging from a 2 laser - 4 color FACSCalibur to a 5 laser - 18 color BD Fortessa.
A - BD FACSAria IIu - 3 lasers (blue, red, violet) - 9 color parameters
B - BD FACSAria IIu - 3 lasers (blue, red, violet) - 9 color parameters
C - BD FACSAria SORP - 3 lasers (blue, red, UV) - 13 color parameters
BD Fortessa - 5 lasers (blue, yellow, red, violet, UV) - 18 color parameters
BD LSRII - 3 lasers (blue, red, violet) - 8 color parameters
BD FACSCalibur - 2 lasers (blue, red) - 4 color parameters
MACSQuant - 3 lasers (blue, yellow, violet) - 8 color parameters
