The Caltech Flow Cytometry Facility is equipped with two research grade flow cytometer/cell sorters capable of sorting 3000 - 10000 events/second based on multiparameter analysis of the cells characteristics (size, density, and fluorescence intensities of multiple colors). In addition, one non-sorting analyzer (FACSCalibur) and a work station are available to researchers for self-service analysis provided that they demonstrate competence to use the analyzer and have taken training provided by the facility.

A completed Biosafety Form must be submitted prior to operator-run appointments or self-service experiments.
