Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting
The Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility (FACS) at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has accumulated specific expertise on measurement and sorting of cells. This expertise builds on the skills gained with a wide variety of analyses and purifications, for example with immune cells, stem cells, sperm cells, chromosomes, bacteria, hybridoma’s for monoclonal antibody production, single cell sorting for cloning and/or PCR analysis, cell selection based on fluorescent reporter gene products and rare event purifications. We are trained to rethink seemingly impossible demands into successful experiments. The facility is in close contact with the manufacturers of the equipment and constantly involved in activities related to technical improvement of the equipment.
