Flow Cytometry Facility

Flow Cytometry is a powerful tool for characterising and isolating cells based on their physical, chemical and functional attributes. This technology allows researchers and clinicians an unparalleled insight into the inner workings of complex biological systems. Although originally utilised as a tool for immunologists to understand the complexities of the immune system, its use has since extended to encompass all areas of the biological sciences.

The Garvan Flow Cytometry Facility (Garvan Flow) has continued to grow and develop a world class status as a centre for flow cytometry excellence. It is now a state-of-the-art facility that offers Garvan staff and students as well as external collaborators access to cell sorting, flow based cell analysis equipment and data analysis programs and workstations as well as expert advice in flow cytometry related issues. It is physically located on levels 9 and 10 of the Garvan Institute.

The MLC Community Foundation Flow Cytometry Facility has a collection of advanced and flexible instrumentation able to provide a solution for most flow cytometric needs. This purpose built core facility provides world-class flow cytometry services to scientists from across the St Vincent’s Research Precinct, UNSW, Australia Research and Technology, the University of Technology, Macquarie University, the University of Wollongong and the broader scientific community in and around Sydney.
