Fluorescence Assisted Cell Sorter
The W.M. Keck Center for Transgene Research develops and uses gene-targeting technology to investigate the role of genes in blood coagulation, anticoagulation, and hemostasis in relation to their impact on cancer, infection, and inflammation. Within the Keck Center is the Fluorescence Assisted Cell Sorting Core Facility (FACS), which is shared between the Indiana University School of Medicine in South Bend (IUSM-SB) and Notre Dame. Located in Raclin-Carmichael Hall on the IUSM-SB campus, it houses a BD Biosciences FACSAria III cell sorter, which is available to Notre Dame and IUSM-SB users, as well as other academic institutions on a case-by-case basis.
