Both, the 2-laser and the 4-laser CytoFLEX are operating again.
The BOKU Core Facility Biomolecular & Cellular Analysis (BmCA) is a state-of-the-art analytical laboratory with focus on biomolecular characterization and characterization of biomolecular interactions as well as flow cytometry.
Beside high-end instrumentation, we offer the possibility to prepare your samples in the most optimal way. We provide basic laboratory equipment and we offer two PC work stations which are accessible for all Core Facility users to utilize the (licenced) special software of the various instruments.
