Immunophenotyping Platform of the Research Institute of the MUHC

McGill University Health Centre, Montréal, Québec
What the facility does

Creates new research opportunities through advances in cell sorting and analytical flow cytometry

Area(s) of Expertise

The Immunophenotyping Platform offers a variety of flow cytometry services. These services include cell sorting, cell analysis, data analysis, automated cell separation and imaging flow cytometry, as well as consultation, user education and training. The platform provides access to the newest technologies and applications in the field. The facility is uniquely equipped, with two five-laser cell sorters that are self-enclosed in biosafety cabinets, two two-laser analyzers and an ImageStream with 12 high-resolution imaging channels, among other instruments, some of which are housed within the Containment Level 3 area.
