Facility Details

The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Facility at Texas A&M mission is to provide the highest quality flow cytometry experimental design, data collection, data analysis and cell sorting services for the faculty, students and staff of the Texas A&M University system and surrounding universities and companies. We currently provide training for flow cytometers, imaging flow cytometer, and data analysis using IDEAS and FlowJo software. We also provide staff-assisted flow cytometry and imaging flow cytometry data acquisition, cell sorting, and data analysis. The core provides experimental design and consultation services. We also welcome and encourage collaborations on research projects. The FCF currently has a Beckman Coulter Moflo Astrios cell sorter, a Luminex/Amnis Image Stream X Mark II, a Luminex/Amnis Cell Stream, and a Becton Dickinson Accuri C6 flow cytometer. The Astrios cell sorter is housed in the ClassII BSC and has 3 lasers (405nm, 488nm, 642nm) and 11 detectors and can sort up to 6 populations simultaneously. The Image Stream X Mark II is equipped with 20x, 40x, 60x objectives, 4 lasers (405nm, 488nm, 561nm, 642nm), 10 detection channels, EV mode for small particle detection, and an autosampler. The Cell Stream is equipped with 3 lasers (405nm, 488nm, 642nm), 13 detection channels, EV mode for small particle detection, and an autosampler. The Accuri C6 is equipped with 2 lasers (488nm, 642nm), and 4 detection channels. The FCF also has two data analysis computer workstations equipped with IDEAS and FlowJo analysis software.
