Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry facility located in the Department of Hematology is committed to offer high quality and cost effective clinical flow cytometry assays to aid in the diagnosis of hematologic and immunologic disorders. We are a full service laboratory that offers a comprehensive test menu for the diagnosis of all types of leukemia, lymphomas and related hematological disorders by multiparameter immunophenotyping.

Apart from the diagnostic services we are also involved in providing technical and educational support to clinicians, researchers and other trainees who come into our laboratory. We are also involved in multiple research projects where the facility is used as a part of the research core facility of the department.

The faculty and technicians assist in all educational and research activities. The staff has the required expertise for performing a variety of flow cytometry applications, including sample processing for surface and intracellular staining, functional assays and complex multi-color flow cytometry analyses.

The laboratory is enrolled for the RCPA (The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia) quality assurance program.
