High Technology Unit-Cytomics Platform

The Cytomics Platform integrates the latest technologies in the field of flow cytometry, applied to both fluorescence-activated cell analysis and sorting. The cytometry techniques allow to analyze and to sort easily and quickly a significant number of cells with high sensitivity and objectivity. It is also possible to obtain both qualitative and quantitative measurements and to define complex cell subpopulations based on the study of a set of parameters defined for each individual cell.



1.Cell analysis by flow cytometry
2.Fluorescence-based cell sorting

Training on self-service equipments, consultation about cytometry techniques and assistance with data analysis are also available. 



  • Cell surface immunophenotypes and intracellular antigens detection
  • Nucleic acids determination (ploidy, cell cycle study)
  • Functional parameters analysis
  • Identification and cell sorting of unique and well-defined cell populations
