Flow Cytometry Facility (SOM /UMGCC)

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique tailor made for making measurements on single cells. Thus it is tailor made for examining cancer cell lines as well as evaluation of clinical response to therapeutic agents used to treat hematologic malignancies.

Solid tissues and adherent cells that grow in culture can also be measured after first disaggregating the individual cells by mechanical or chemical means.

Size, shape, granularity, protein content, DNA content, intracellular pH and calcium concentration are the most common cellular parameters that can be measured by the flow cytometer. The cells may be examined live or fixed.
