Three high-speed cell sorters and a magnetic separator are available in our facility to allow our users to sort cells of interest and therefore work on pure populations, or to enrich / deplete for a specific cellular subset.
Our three high-speed cell sorters, the Beckman Coulter MoFlo Astrios EQ, the Becton Dickinson FACSAria II and the Becton Dickinson FACSAria Fusion, are exclusively operated by FCCF Staff. Our cell sorters are located in rooms AI 0137.
On the other hand, the Miltenyi AutoMACS Pro Separator, our magnetic separator, is available to our users and training for that instrument is done upon request. The AutoMACS is located in room AI 0346.
All the cell sorters and magnetic separator are enclosed in a hood and located in a BSL-2 environment.
