The Flow Cytometry Facility, located in the C-Wing, Ground Floor of the Division of Biological Sciences is a dedicated scientific service offering an extensive flow cytometry analysis and sorting facility with state of the art instrumentation, operated by qualified personnel including project assistants, research scientists and scientific officers. It is actively involved in acquisition, analyses and cell sorting in various areas of bio-medical research catering to all the departments of the Indian Institute of Science. It is extensively used by the research community from not only the departments of Division of Biological Sciences, but also from departments like Materials Research Centre (MRC), Materials Engineering (ME), Mechanical Engineering, Centre for Neuroscience (CNS), Inorganic Physical Chemistry (IPC), CIDR, Organic Chemistry.

That researchers increasingly recognize the contributions of this facility is reflected by a striking increase in the number of activities and projects that it has been supporting since 2014 onwards.

THE ABILITY TO DISCRIMINATE, QUANTIFY AND SORT, DISTINCT POPULATIONS OF CELLS /ORGANELLES/ PARTICLES BASED ON THEIR EXPRESSION OF SPECIFIC MARKERS WITH RAPID PACE IS FLOW CYTOMETRY.
