The department houses a BD FACSCalibur Flow Cytometer, which is frequently used for cell cycle analysis, protein expression, measurement of metabolic activity and apoptosis. The FACSCalibur has one laser with an excitation line at 488 nm, allowing three color fluorescence analyses. Emission signals are centered at 530 nm, 585 nm, and 682 nm. Software used with the cytometer includes CellQuestPro.
