Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility

The Harry Hood Bassett Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility (FCCS) is located on the College of Medicine campus in the Health Sciences Research Facility (HSRF) Building Rooms 305-307. The facility provides state-of-the-art flow cytometry to the UVM community as well as other nearby colleges. An important part of our mission is to teach this technology to students, staff, and investigators. Additionally, FCCS Facility personnel provide scientific and technical consultation to faculty and staff in the design of flow cytometric experiments, and provide assistance in data analysis and interpretation.
