Biomedicum Flow Cytometry Core Facility (BFC)
The Biomedicum Flow Cytometry Core Facility (BFC) is a shared resource laboratory providing a comprehensive suite of services to support your research needs in flow cytometry. Our state-of-the-art facility offers conventional and full spectral cytometry for multi-parametric analysis, as well as multiparameter fluorescence activated cell sorting.
Flow Cytometry Analysis
Flow Cytometry Analysis involves using a flow cytometer to interrogate cells stained with fluorescent markers and classifying them into groups. Cells pass through the instrument once and go straight to a waste container. There is no cell recovery.
Flow Cytometry Sorting
Flow Cytometry Sorting involves using a flow cytometer with cell sorting capability to interrogate cells stained with fluorescent markers, classifying them into groups, and then physically separate the groups into test tubes or multi-well plates.
Sony ID7000™ Spectral Analyzers (Alice and Howard)
The full spectral analyzer on the Sony ID7000 instrument has a distinctive ability to measure the complete emission spectra of fluorescent dyes, excited by the multiple lasers present on the instrument.
BD FACSCanto™ II Analyzer
The BD FACSCanto™ II is an analytic flow cytometer including up to 10-color analysis and automated data acquisition.
BD LSR II SORP Analyzer
An analytic flow cytometer equipped with four-laser benchtop flow cytometer with the ability to acquire up to 18 colors.
BD FACSVerse™ Analyzer
The BD FACSVerse™ flow cytometer is equipped with 3 lasers with emissions at 405, 488 and 640nm wavelenghts, as well as 10 detectors that enable the measurement of 8 colours and FSC.
BD FACSAria™ III Sorter
This cell sorter is capable of performing index sorting, which is a valuable tool for establishing correlations between phenotype and gene expression of sorted cells.
BD FACSAria™ Fusion Sorter
Equipped with four high-powered lasers with emissions at 405, 488, 561, and 640nm wavelengths, as well as 20 detectors that enable the measurement of up to 18 colors simultaneously.
