Flow Cytometry Unit


The flow Cytometry Unit which has been supported by the Howat Foundation is located within the Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre at the University of Glasgow.  This Unit consists of a two flow cytometers, “FACSAria” – a cell sorter and “FACSCantoII” – a cell analyzer.  These machines play an integral role to all research programmes, enabling us to isolate and characterise rare cell populations with leukaemic potential from a larger population of cells. The goal of the Unit in October 2010, when we received funding from the Howat Foundation was to generate a reliable cell sorting service and flow cytometry facility for departmental and external users, which would be self-funding.  We aim to realise that goal over the next two years, which without funding from the Howat Foundation, would have taken significantly longer.
