The University of Auckland requires a cell sorter able to support single cell sorting applications, for a variety of research applications that require tiny sort volumes (for genomics applications) as well as sorting rare cell populations or sensitive cell populations that do not survive during a standard cell sort (due to the pressure required). This procurement will provide the capability for single cell sorting in a manner that is sufficiently effective for microeukaryote, prokaryote, rare, or sensitive cells from mixed population environmental samples.
The School of Biological Sciences within the Faculty of Science is located at the University’s city campus. This is a multi-disciplinary research facility. This particular procurement will assist in the support of seven key research groups, including groups headed up by Anna Brooks, Rod Dunbar and Kim Handley who are leaders in their fields of immunology and microbial genomics. The School has a long history in cell sorting research and has academic and professional staff with considerable experience in this field
