Flow Cytometry 

The Flow Cytometry at the Danish Stem Cell Center is a shared resource laboratory between DanStem and the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research.  The facility has state-of-the-art equipment and software for analysis and cell sorting, and provides training, support and expertise to researchers at DanStem, CPR, affiliates and collaborators in the greater Copenhagen area. 

The flow core is equipped with three cell sorters and an analyzer that are available to trained users.  Also, the facility has copies and provides support for BD FACSDiva, Modfit LT, Flowjo and FCS Express. 

The flow core offers a basics of flow cytometry course together with the BRIC Flow Cytometry, and also offers equipment-specific training.  The facility also regularly hosts seminars on new flow cytometry technology, software and reagents.

In addition, consultation on experimental design, troubleshooting and data analysis can be arranged with the core manager.
