Flow Cytometry Core Facility


The Hyperion Tissue Imaging unit allows for high dimensional analysis of tissue sections by mass cytometry. Tissue is analysed directly from the slide; preserving spatial relationships and eliminating the need to disassociate into single cell suspensions.

Imaging is achieved through laser ablation of sections stained with isotope-labelled antibodies and probes. Clouds of these rare earth metals are analysed by time of flight (TOF) cytometry and digitally reconstructed for in-depth image analysis.
