Flow Cytometry

The LSR II analyser

The AMREP Flow Cytometry Facility is a state-of-the-art, cell sorting and cell analysis laboratory, catering for the scientific research community at AMREP and broader Melbourne. The facility is located in the Monash Department of Immunology, with some instruments located within the Burnet Institute.

The Flow Cytometry Facility offers comprehensive training and education, experimental design and protocol guidance specifically targeting effective data generation and interpretation. Services catering for both animal and human cell sorting in a PC2 environment are offered.

The facility can also handle infectious sample sorting (e.g. HIV, Hepatitis C) in a dedicated PC3 environment. The facility offers two FACSAria high-throughput sorting platforms, a BD InFlux 6 way sorting platform and seven analytical flow cytometers: an LSR Fortessa with a 96-well High Throughput Sampler (HTS), an LSR II, two FACSCanto II (one with HTS) and three FACSCalibur units.
