Cutting-edge technology lies at the heart of research at the Malaghan Institute, enabling us to deeply interrogate the complex relationship between the immune system and our health to find new opportunities for treatments and cures.
Based here at the Malaghan Institute in Wellington, the Hugh Green Cytometry Centre is New Zealand’s centre of excellence for cytometry and other research technologies.
With cutting-edge technology supported by in-house expertise, the Hugh Green Cytometry Centre offers a range of services to researchers and organisations across the sciences and around the world, advancing knowledge across molecular biology, biochemistry, chemistry, neuroscience and marine biology.
Our cell technology suite is proudly sponsored by the Hugh Green Foundation. Their generosity gives us access to state-of-the-art cell analysis and enables us to train our staff, students and the wider scientific community in the use of these modern technologies.
Flow cytometry underpins all our research projects. It works by using lasers to excite fluorescent dyes that are attached to a cell type of interest via an antibody specific for that cell. This enables recognition, characterisation and subsequent sorting of cells of interest.
