The Flow Cytometry Core Facility was created in 2020 at the RVC Hawkshead Campus in a drive to provide state-of-the art imaging facilities for researchers, clinicians and contract workers.

This will provide scientists and clinicians with on-side facilities to foster new and exciting research opportunities, to develop clinically relevant ex-vivo assays, as well as to provide commercial partners with the infrastructure and the knowledge present in one place, linking our capabilities from pure in-vitro/ex-vivo experiments through to in vivo experiments.

Access to this equipment

This resource is available for researchers within the RVC as well as external users.

Equipment can be self-use upon completion of training, or on the basis of a commercial contract.
