The BCI has a dedicated Core Facility for Flow Cytometry, run by experienced staff who train users, help scientists with their experiments and troubleshoot when things go wrong.

Flow cytometry uses fluorescent labelling to investigate characteristics of cells like cancer cells, and can look at thousands of cells at a time.

The ImageStream works like a flow cytometer, but also takes a fluorescence image of each individual cell that passes through the instrument.

Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) works on the same principles as a flow cytometer, but in this case we can tell the instrument which cells we would like to keep for further experiments, depending on their characteristics.

Flow cytometry data can be visualized in a dot plot, where each dot represents a cell and the fluorescent signal tells us if the cell has that particular marker or not.

The CyTOF2 uses new technology called Mass Cytometry, where cells are labelled with heavy metals instead of fluorescent markers.

PCR machines take most of the hard work out of polymerase chain reactions (amplifying specific sections of DNA). Our BCI STARS students do some DNA fingerprinting during their course. Photo by Dr Marianne Baker.

All of the tissue culture suites have light microscopes so that researchers can check up on their cells, count them, and plan experiments. Photo by Dr Marianne Baker during BCI STARS 2014.
