The Flow and Imaging Cytometry Resource provides research flow and imaging cytometry services to all investigators in the Prgram in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital and the local scientific community on a case-by-case basis. With state of the art instrumentation, such as two standard configuration 3-lasers FACSArias located in BL2+-facility and in PCMM core space, and one with 20-parameters 4-lasers FACSAria SORP, the facility offers high speed cell sorting and complex analytical services as well as consulting on design and development of new protocols and methods. In addition, the facility has two 8-color FACSCantos and two dual laser FACSCaliburTM benchtop analyzers. In addition, an Imagestream100 imaging cytometer was acquired with a help of NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant.
