Extension of our multi-colour flow cytometry capability

10 August 2012, Technology

 

Brigitta Mester puts our new LSR Fortessa through its paces.

With the support of Lottery Health Research and The Thompson Family Foundation Inc, we have been able to purchase a new flow cytometer for the Malaghan Institute - a Becton Dickinson LSR Fortessa.

This is our second multi-colour cytometer, capable of studying numerous cell characteristics at a single pass.

This investment reinforces our position as New Zealand’s leading flow cytometry facility and provides a significant boost to the efforts of our research teams.

With flow cytometry underpinning all of our immunological research, these tools are absolutely vital to our efforts to understand and capitalise on the ways in which the elements of our immune systems interact.
