Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry Facility provides a state of the art flow cytometry service to iMM Lisboa researchers as well as external groups from other research institutes. We aim at training researchers in the adequate use of the instruments and also on flow cytometry principles, experiment planning, as well as data analysis and interpretation. The Flow Cytometry Facility also provides a cell sorting service using two High Speed Cell Sorters (BD FACSAria III and BD FACSAria IIu) operated by dedicated staff.

Instruments and Services

Our flow cytometers are grouped into two categories: analyzers and cell sorters. Analyzers are instruments for acquisition only, cells cannot be recovered once they are analyzed in the instrument. Cell sorters are capable of physically “sorting” out a population(s) of interest.

How to use the Service

All new users must contact the Flow Cytometry Facility to get proper training in using the systems and know the usage rules. Only after training will a user gain access to the Flow Cytometry room and to the online booking system.
To get access to the cell sorters online booking, users must contact the Flow Cytometry staff.
