Stem Cell and Flow Cytometry Unit

The Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER) funded stem cell suite is located within the School of Biosciences. The facility is primarily set up as a stem cell suite and comprises a BD FACS Canto analyser and FACS Aria cell sorter. The facility also has tissue culture facilities for both primary culture and established cell lines, the latter being a mycoplasma free environment. The suite also houses a time-lapse fluorescent microscope and ultra low temperature tissue/cell storage facility.
