Cell Sorting

  • Cell sorting is a complex procedure that requires the skill of a trained operator to acquire, analyse and eventually sort cells based on client directives.  Sorting is performed under sterile conditions on one of two instruments housed in Class IIA biosafety cabinets.
Operator Assisted Data Acqusition and Analysis

  • Clients who have not been trained to use the analysis systems or who are interested in achieving quick and reliable results may request professional service to acquire and analyze their data.  Once acquisition is complete, operators explain results and also provide data summaries which may include publication ready images (if requested).
