Facility Overview

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry Flow Cytometry Facility is a multi-user facility at the University of Alberta. Orignially established in 1981, it provides a variety of high quality services for internal and private sector investigators.  Today the facility houses 8 instruments (3 FACSArias, FACSCanto, 3 LSR-Fortessas, and an Amnis ImageStream mkII) that offer state-of-the-art analytical flow cytometry, cell sorting, and data analysis.

The Facility operates on a fee-for-use basis, which allows partial cost recovery for operating expenses and service contracts for the instruments.  A major portion of Facility operating costs are provided through grant support from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and financial support from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.
