NIHR Cambridge BRC Cell Phenotyping Hub


The Immunophenotyping Hub contains state of the art cell sorters, FACS analysers and confocal microscopes. We are housed on the 6th floor extension to the department of medicine lab-block (e6)

Our Primary cell sorter is a 13 colour AriaIII that is contained inside a custom built cat2 hood, allowing us to sort unscreened patient material

All users must receive specific training on all confocals and analysers. For facility induction contact Anna Petrunkina, for all bookings contact Simon McCallum
