FACS Core Equipment
The Flow Cytometry & Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting Core (FACS) consists of four FACS analysis instruments located in Rooms 5340, 5220 and 5224, and one FACS sorter located in 5224. These include FACS Calibur DxP, CytoFLEX S, Amnis Imagestream X, Miltenyi MACSQuant and BD Influx. The Core also includes additional equipment necessary for the operation of the Influx cell sorter — a Gast air compressor with two gallon reserve to provide air pressure and a Nikon Axioskop fluorescent microscope for alignment of the lasers. A summary of each piece of equipment is included below.
All core equipment is maintained by Christopher Lazarski, and users are encouraged to ask questions about training, use and interpretations.
