Cell sorting (FACS)
Flow cytometry provides an incredibly flexible method for the characterization of cells in suspension. Fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) allows selection of cells on the basis of e.g. surface, cytoplasmic and nuclear antigens, fluorescent protein expressions, etc. The FMI FACS service uses three instruments: BD (Becton Dickinson) FACSCalibur a two-laser analyzer, BD FACSAria cell sorter with 5 lasers and an BD Influx cell sorter equipped with 4 lasers.
