The platform allows the phenotyping of cells through the detection and identification of membrane and intracellular molecules. In order to purify a cell subpopulation, we also perform high throughput cell sorting, based on multi-parametric cell analysis. These subpopulations can then be studied for different parameters (transcriptome, proteome, in vivo transfer...).
RESTORE cytometry platform is a partner of the Toulouse Imaging Network Platform (TRI). It is certified ISO 9001 version 2015. The platform has a cell sorter, two analyzers and an image cytometer and offers a strong expertise on cells coming from solid tissues (adipose tissue, muscles, gums…). All the equipment is integrated in a L2 containment area.
The use of the equipment is open to research teams from public and private institutions, subject to acceptance of the projects by the manager.
The platform's engineer evaluates the user's request and proposes the most suitable solution for his needs:
- providing advice in the development of multi-color panels,
providing training to users,
assisting users in the analysis and interpretation of their results,
assisting users in the implementation of research and development projects, in the form of collaboration.
