Cytometry

The CHUM Research Centre's cytometry laboratory offers a complete range of services for multi-parameter cellular analysis.

We perform multi-parameter analyses of cells and other particles.

Done simultaneously, these analyses of several functional parameters, combined with surface markers, make it possible to identify and understand new mechanisms of cell immunity and viral pathogenesis.

We offer expert services in high-speed cell sorting for the purification of discrete primary cell subsets (peripheral blood or other tissues) or cell lines.

Our research centre is one of the few in Canada that offers a high-speed cell sorting service in a Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) cabinet allowing the sorting of cells of patients infected with HIV and HVC.

Our services are available to researchers from universities, hospitals and for projects in partnership with the industry.
