Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) is a specialized type of flow cytometry which can be used to sort a heterogeneous mixture of cells into different homogeneous subpopulations of interest based upon the specific light scattering and fluorescent characteristics of each cell. In such a mixture of cells, the different subpopulations may have different antigenic or other markers on their surface. These markers can be tagged by the means fluorescently-labeled antibodies which can then be detected by laser and light detectors.
This powerful and versatile technology can provide rapid, accurate, and high throughput cell analysis. It can be used to study cell cycle, cell proliferation, cell viability, cell phenotyping, cell signaling, intracellular cytokine secretion, etc. The advanced equipment in our laboratory allows us to conduct accurate experiments with high efficiency. We have experienced scientists that can provide ideal and customer-tailored experimental designs. Our team can offer you the professional data analysis you need.
