The flow cytometry platform provides users with the latest generation equipment for cytometric analysis and separation of cell populations. Unit staff support users in experimental design, data acquisition, and analysis of results. Furthermore, unit staff performs periodic training of the users to facilitate their non-assisted use of the equipment in the platform.
The flow cytometry platform is certified by the ISO 9001:2015, and offers sample analysis, from staining to delivery of results, as well as the possibility of fine-tuning new techniques at the request of both internal and external users.
The flow cytometry platform has a wide range of applications in flow cytometry and cell sorting and is open to innovation with new techniques at the request of researchers.
