Harry Hood Bassett Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting (FCCS) Facility

Overview of Services

The Harry Hood Bassett Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting (FCCS) facility at UVM is a College of Medicine Core Facility designed as a multi-user resource for the high speed analysis and sorting of cells. The FCCS facility has BD LSRII and MACSQuant VYB analytical cytometers, and a BD FACSAriaIII high-speed cell sorter. This equipment was purchased through National Institute of Health and UVM-College of Medicine Shared Instrumentation Grants. Investigators who bring samples to the FCCS facility for sorting or analysis pay a fee, which is used to offset operating expenses. The FCCS facility provides professional consultation and assistance with equipment use, experimental design, and interpretation of flow data.
