Advanced Imaging and Flow Cytometry Facility

Automated Screening with the Opera Phenix

The Imaging and Cytometry Facility’s remit is to provide state of the art tools for both the fundamental and translational study of cancer - from molecular interactions in primary cells through to tissue-wide responses - and, taking our lead from the requirements of the group leaders and their research, the facility is in a constant state of change as team the responds by introducing new equipment, methods, and workflows.

The team works alongside other facilities at the Institute, with interdisciplinary projects such as histology image analysis, high content screening, and single cell sorting for molecular biology applications.

Founded in 2001 the facility comprises of 22 systems and eight members of a team who have a wide range of specialties; their roles include maintaining and calibrating the equipment to defined standards, technical support, experimental design, and to work alongside researchers to assist in the production of biologically and statistically relevant data.

For registered users of the facility please use the PPMS calendar system for booking equipment time and services ppms.eu/man For any further information about any of the technologies or applications within the facility please email steve.bagley@cruk.manchester.ac.uk
