Instructions

1. The unit’s services are open to researchers of the TLVMC, as well as external users according to the R&D rules of use.

2. Access to all resources in the core facility is available as a paid service. Payment will be charged per usage.

3. Access requires pre-registration and opening of an account in the core facility by the PI or lab manager that will be used by all lab members.

4. Each user will have one of the following authorization levels for each device in the core facility unit:

  • Beginners – do not have permission to work alone. Their order must be approved in advanced with core personnel via email. They are requested for training.
  • Authorized – received training and qualified to self-operate an instrument.
    The confirmation will be via email.
  • Independent – a skilled user. May order and use in instrument at any time.
    The confirmation will be via email.

5. For ordering equipment please use our booking system.

BD FACSAria™ Fusion Cell Sorter

A digital high-speed flow cytometry-based cell sorter. Equipped with four lasers lines; 405nm, 488nm, 561nm and 633nm, the BD FACSAria™ Fusion Cell Sorter is designed to precisely sort cells at high flow speeds and to enable simultaneous multicolor analysis of up to 16 parameters.

Sorted cells (up to four distinct populations) are collected in a variety of collecting tubes or multi-well plates, with four sizes of nozzles (70, 85, 100 and 130 micron). There is a temperature controlled sample chamber and collection tube holder to enhance cell viability.

Using this equipment must be coordinated with the core personnel. We teach users to become independent.

IVIS Lumina III

Market trusted technology offering the fullest suite of leading imaging technologies, reagents and support Exquisite sensitivity in bioluminescence Full fluorescence tunability through the NIR spectrum Compute Pure Spectrum spectral unmixing for ultimate fluorescence sensitivity

Preclinical imaging for non-invasive longitudinal monitoring of disease progression, cell trafficking and gene expression patterns in living animals. The IVIS Lumina III is capable of imaging both fluorescent and bioluminescent reporters. The system is equipped with up to 26 filter sets that can be used to image reporters that emit from green to near-infrared. Superior spectral unmixing is achieved by Lumina III’s optional high resolution short cut off filters. Features & Benefits
  • Market trusted technology offering the fullest suite of leading imaging technologies, reagents and support
  • Exquisite sensitivity in bioluminescence
  • Full fluorescence tunability through the NIR spectrum
  • Compute Pure Spectrum spectral unmixing for ultimate fluorescence sensitivity
