Instrumentation
The facility currently operates four Becton-Dickinson instruments:

The FACSCalibur is a two-laser flow cytometer that is operated by the end user. It permits measurement of four fluorescent and two light-scatter parameters. Trained users prepare and acquire or analyze their own samples using a Macintosh G4 computer and either CellQuestTM or FlowJo software.
The FACSCanto II is an operator-assisted flow cytometer with three lasers: 405 nm, 488 nm and 633 nm. It permits measurement of eight fluorescent and two light-scatter parameters.
The BD-LSR II analyzer is an operator-assisted flow cytometer with three-lasers: 405 nm, 488 nm and 633 nm. It is capable of measuring up to 12 parameters (10 fluorescent and two light-scatter).
The BD LSRFortessa is an operator-assisted flow cytometer with four lasers: 405 nm, 488 nm, 561 nm and 640 nm. It can measure up to 18 parameters (16 fluorescent and two light-scatter).
