Flow cytometry is an expanding analytical technique that is based on the analysis of the dispersion of light and the fluorescence emission that produces a suspension of particles illuminated by different sources of laser light.
The analysis of the obtained parameters allows a rapid discrimination of each of the particles or cells suspended in a liquid, taking into account its size and the fluorescence signal. The applications of flow cytometry are numerous in both basic research and applied research, and especially in the field of cell biology and clinical medicine.
The flow cytometry service has as its main function to offer technical support in the identification and classification of cells, the development of new methods of classification and the optimization of the methods already established. The service employs a FACSAria team with a cell separation system.
