The Cytometry and Cell Sorting platform uses advanced equipment for multiparameter analysis and separation of living or fixed cells in suspension. It is based on the analysis of the morphological characteristics and the marking of the samples with fluorescent molecules, intercalating agents or antibodies bound to fluorophores.
The platform has trained technical personnel to assist in the planning of the experiment, use of the equipment and data analysis.
