CYTOMETRY LABORATORY

Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Beira Interior

Service Centre category(ies)

Cell Analysis / Flow Cytometry

Description of the Service Centre

This laboratory (24 m2) is equipped with a flow cytometer FACScalibur (4 colors), and a high-speed analyzer CyAn (Beckam Coulter) that can measure up to 9 colors. These instruments allow us to analyze biological cells, beads or other microscopic particles. With their multi-color capabilities, a wide range of flow cytometric research and clinical demands can be performed, such as immunophenotyping and cell viability analysis. Additionally, there is an AutoMACS cell separator (BD).

Cyan uses multiple laser excitation sources to analyze biological cells, beads or other microscopic particles. It utilizes high performance digitization with pulse processing speed up to 70,000 events per second. It is equipped with three excitation lasers: 405nm, 488nm, 642nm, and can measure up to 11 standard parameters: 9 colors (2 violet, 5 blue, and 2 red ), as well as FCS and SSC.
