Flow Cytometry Core Facility: Manager, Brandon Neldner

The ASU Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) located in the Biodesign Institute provides fluorescently activated cell sorting (FACS) and cell analysis to Arizona State University (ASU) and the surrounding scientific community. The Facility houses a BD FACSAria IIu cell sorter with violet (405nm), blue (488nm), yellow (561nm), and red (637nm) excitation lasers capable of four way sorting into tubes and 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, and 96-well plates, including single-cell sorts, utilizing 15 fluorescent (17 total) parameters. The Facility also houses two cell analyzers; a Beckman Coulter Gallios and Life Technologies Attune NxT with Autosampler. The Beckman Coulter Gallios is capable of detecting 10 fluorescent (12 total) parameters off of three excitation lasers violet (405nm), blue (488nm), and red (637nm). The Attune NxT flow cytometer has violet (405nm), blue (488nm), yellow (561nm), and red (637nm) excitation lasers capable of 14 fluorescent (16 total) parameters. The cytometer takes in samples via 1.5mL microcentrifuge and 5mL tubes at a rate of up to 1mL of sample per minute. The attached Autosampler allows high throughput sampling (1mL/min) out of regular and deep 96- and 384-well plates. The FCCF provides researchers with experimental consultation, expert panel design and data analysis support.
