Cell Analysis Facilities
The facility houses one state-of-the-art cell sorter (BD FACSAria Fusion), an imaging cytometer (Amnis ImageStream X Mark II), a full-spectrum cytometer (Cytek Aurora) and four conventional flow cytometers (BD LSRFortessa, BD FACSCanto II, BD Accuri C6 & Thermo Fisher’s Attune NxT). The lab is available to all researchers and serves over 100 research groups, with ~ 200 regular users per month. The facility manager, Dr Barry Moran, has considerable experience and expertise and works with the researchers in all aspects of their cytometry projects, from experimental & panel design, to data acquisition, onto analysis and presentation.
The services of this facility are available to all researchers, both internal and external to the University. The instruments are designed for analysis of multiple dyes on fixed or live samples (e.g. multicolor immunofluorescence, intracellular regulation of pH and calcium, photoactivation, colocalisation studies FRET & FRAP).
The facility located in TBSI features a JEOL JEM-1400 120Kv TEM, ideally suited to life sciences applications.
