Flow Cytometry

Ulf Klein, PhD, Director

The Cancer Center Flow Cytometry Shared Resource assists Cancer Center Members in flow cytometry-based studies. The ability to separate a heterogeneous mixture of cells into distinct populations for phenotypic characterization or functional analysis has become increasingly important for biomedical research. Flow cytometry is especially valuable for these purposes as it combines the analytical power of multi-parameter analysis with the possibility to isolate populations of cells according to specific parameters.
