Midlands Innovation Flow Cytometry Group 

MI Flow Cytometry Group sublogo-v2

Our vision is to bring together expertise in flow cytometry from across the Midlands and promote the facilities available to all MI institutions. Our annual flow cytometry conference attracts 150+ researchers, showcasing vital research undertaken with flow cytometry.

Equipment Sharing 

Members of the group have secured grants worth £921,000 for state-of-the-art equipment to support flow cytometry research within the Midlands.

Within the Midlands our network was the first in the UK to house a Sony ID7000 spectral flow cytometer, located at the University of Nottingham, which enables a deeper level of insight for a wide range of medical and biological projects. 

The University of Birmingham provides a fully comprehensive CYTOF service to the Midlands and beyond which is a key technology for patient-based research.

Sharing advanced flow cytometry equipment enables experiments that would not otherwise be possible, adding significant value to a wide range of research disciplines as well as developing collaborations across Midlands Innovation institutions.
