The Flow Cytometry group is a core facility of the Center for Integrated BioSystems at Utah State University. The facility provides instrumentation, personnel, and expertise to assist researchers in flow cytometry and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) applications.
The laboratory is equipped with a BD Biosciences Special Order FACSAria™ II, which is a high-speed FACS that can perform high-resolution, multicolor flow cytometry analysis. Our FACSAria™ II has 4 lasers that can detect up to 13 different colors in addition to the cell sorting functionality, and uses BD FACSDiva™ software for data acquisition and analysis.
For a complete list of available filter sets, lasers, and wavelengths, see our filter worksheet. Services are offered as fee for service (see fee schedule). The flow cytometry group is directed by Dr. Chris Davies and managed by Amanda Wilhelm.
