The mission of the Flow Cytometry core facility is to assist and advice users for experimental design in flow cytometry experiments, sample acquisitions, data analysis and to provide cell sorting and cloning service. The flow cytometry staff also provides theoretical and technical training and troubleshooting support.
Our staff has a solid expertise in flow cytometry. If you have any questions regarding the design of your experiments or if you need technical assistance, please contact us or meet us at the facility.
The facility is accessible to internal users (University of Geneva and HUG) but also to external users (industry & academics).
Analyzer Flow Cytometers are available 24/24 hours, 7/7 days for trained users. We provide support, by appointment only, from Monday to Friday from 10 to 12 am and from 2 to 5 pm.
Flow Cell Sorters housed in our Facility are available from Monday to Friday, from 9.30 am to 6 pm, and can only be booked with assistance.
PC workstations for analysis are available 24/24 hours, 7/7 days. Different analysis sotwares are installed on these computers: Flow Jo, Diva 8, Kaluza.
