NEW! BD Fortessa Cell Analyzer

The BD Fortessa LSR flow cytometry cell analyzer has the same 5-laser setup as the ARIA cell sorter, with 18-color, 20-parameter detection and a high throughput microwell sample uptake system. This cytometer is available for operation by students and staff. This instrument is used for immunophenotyping, phosphoprotein analysis, DNA analysis, cell cycle and functional assays.

NEW! Fluidigm C1 System

Fluidigm's C1 system is designed to isolate, process, and prepare individual cells for genome and transcriptome analysis. The instrument is used to sort cells in liquid suspension into 96 separate chambers to prepare them for DNA or RNA extraction. In partnership with the Purdue Genomics Core Facility, researchers apply NGS to identify changes in the genome or the gene expression patterns that affect cellular events and metabolic processes.

BD FACS Aria III Cell Sorter

The BD FACS Aria III Cell Sorter is a 5-laser, 14-color, 16-parameter high-speed cell sorter with temperature control and housed within a biosafety cabinet for sorting of biohazardous samples. Wavelength excitation choices now include 405-nm, 488-nm, 561-nm, 633-nm and 355-nm (UV) lasers. With the advanced gel-coupled cuvette and octagon- and trigon-shaped detector arrays that maximize signal detection, the BD FACSAria III represents the state of the art in cell sorting. In addition, we will also do analysis-only experiments on the FACS Aria that require greater than four colors. 

Beckman Coulter FC500

The FC500 is a flow cytometry analyzer with two laser excitation wavelengths, 488nm and 615nm that can measure up to 5 colors simultaneously. This cytometer is available for operation by students and staff. It runs samples in 96 well plates or 12x75 tubes. This instrument is used for immunophenotyping, phosphoprotein analysis, DNA analysis, cell cycle and functional assays.
