Cell viability & cell proliferation
Flow cytometry allows to analyse cell viability. This analysis will be performed by the researcher or by a member of the platform staff, on the FACSCanto II, or on the FACSFortessa or on the FACSCalibur or on the FACSVerse.
In general, it is usefull to have a discussion before the beginning of the experiment, to ensure a proper preparation of the samples.
These equipment can be used by researchers themselves. Before any access to the equipment, it is however mandatory to :
- read the platform regulation and to accept its terms
- fill the Biosafety Level 1 form (Français/English) before any new experiment
- follow a training: all users must be trained by the platform coordinator, not by other users. If you are already experienced in using such instrument, the coordinator will supervised your first session to verify that you are able to handle the instrument correctly and according to the local oparating procedures.
