The Flow Cytometry/Cell Sorting & Confocal Microscopy Core Facility has been analyzing samples for academic and industrial researchers at reasonable costs since 1985. The goal of the Facility is to give investigators access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, technical expertise and experimental protocols for analysis of cells, particles, and tissues by flow cytometry / cell sorting and confocal microscopy.

Laser lines
The LSM 710 is capable of 34 spectral detection channels using six laser lines - 405, 458, 488, 514, 561 & 633 nm, plus an additional 594 nm HeNe laser (includes replacement main beam splitter wheel equipped for 458, 488, 514, 561, 594 & 633 nm laser lines). The 561 and 594 lasers are needed to visualize mCherry, Texas Red, and other red fluorophores including Alexa 568, Alexa 594.
