Michael Thomson has recently commenced as Manager of our MHTP Flow Cytometry research facility. Prior to commencing at MHTP, Michael was Manager of the Flow Cytometry Facility at St Vincent's Institute for several years, which followed being Assistant Manager in the Flow Cytometry Posistion at the Burnet Institute.
Our MHTP Flow Cytometry facility is also going through the transition of becoming the first Node of Monash Flowcore. It will soon be relocating and operational on the Technologies Platform Floor - Level 4 of the TRF building. This is anticipated to be finalised by the beginning of April 2017. The new Platform will house a new 5-Laser 18-Parameter BD FACS Aria Fusion Cell Sorter in a Class II Baker Hood, and a 5-Laser 18-Parameter BD Fortessa X-20 Analyser. These new instruments will be in addition to the facilities existing - MoFlow XDP Cell Sorter and BD Canto-II Analyser.
At present, booking instruments is via the exisiting processes, however we will transition to the ARIN booking system once the Node has commenced. This is the system currently used by Monash Flowcore on the University Campus, Histology, Medical Genomics, etc.
Details of the MHTP Flowcore operation and bookings transition will be confirmed in the near future.
Introductory Seminars we will also be held to assist with the transition .
Michael looks forward to supporting you with Flow Cytometry questions, discussing projects or providing advice to support your research and can be contracted via
We hope you will take the opportunity to meet our new Platform manager soon.
