As of Dec 1, 2015, all appointments must be made using FOM.

Flow cytometer with 2-laser, 6-color (4-2) configuration.  Uses blue (488 nm) and red (633 nm) lasers to excite fluorescent objects in the flow cell.  FACSDiva software provides quantification of cell populations, based on fluorescence emission and forward (FSC) and side (SSC) scattering, related to cell size and shape (granularity).  FlowJo software is also available on the workstation for advanced data analysis.
