SVM units

  • A BD FACS Canto was recently installed: FACSCanto II Flow Cytometry System is capable of detecting 6 fluorescence colors with dual laser (488nm and 633nm) excitation. The BD FACSCanto II boasts a new fluidic and optical design, which allows for high acquisition speed and low sample carryover. Fully digital electronics make for easier multicolor compensation.
  • The BD FACSCalibur is a two-laser (488nm and 635nm), four-color analog analyzer.

Please visit for information on rates, all locations and training, or call the core lab at 215.898.3528. Training is required before using the facility.
