Cambridge Biomedical will be offering flow cytometry.
We are very excited to introduce a new state-of-the-art tool in our contract research arsenal. Flow cytometry (FACS) is a very powerful technique for rapidly analyzing large numbers of cells individually using light-scattering, fluorescence, and absorbance measurements. The use of multiple markers in polychromatic flow cytometry has a host of applications in both basic research, drug discovery, and the clinical laboratory.
The advantages and applications of flow cytometry include, but not limited to:
- The capability to simultaneously analyze multipe parameters for a given cell population
- High throughput cell and particle based screening and analyses can be performed
- In depth analysis of complex cellular processes such as oncogenesis, cell cycle regulation, autophagy, apoptosis, necrosis, senescence, cell proliferation, and functional studies within phenotypically defined populations, such as calcium flux, and phosphorylated proteins
- Can be used for intracellular and cytoplasmic antigen analysis, and organelle analysis, such as for mitochondria
- Multiple applications include, but not limited to: DNA and RNA analysis, translocation assays, screening for ploidy, immunophenotyping, oncological and disease-associated biomarker analysis and monitoring, whole cell and receptor binding assays, cell counting, funtional G-protein-coupled receptor screening, in vitro toxicology, antibody screening, and rare event analysis, such as in dendritic cells, and stem cells/progenitor cells
- Application in a variety fo cell-types, such as bacterial cells; mammalian cells, such as bone marrow, hematological, malignant, neurological, and immunological cells; and insect cells
- Powerful tool in diverse fields of research and clinical applications: Human medicine and research, Veterinary Medicine, Marine Biology, Food and drug industry and agricultural sciences, Toxicology, Environmental sciences, Microbiology, and Botanical sciences
