Flow Cytometry, Cell Sorting, and Cell Analysis 2016-11-17T13:59:41+00:00

This core provides investigators with multi-parameter flow cytometric analysis capabilities, training and service. Highly trained research staff are at hand, as are dedicated workstations with FloJo and Winlist software systems. In parallel, we also provide services in cell separation procedures including fluorescence activated cell sorting via an upgraded FACS ARIA II system, and magnetic activated cell sorting systems (including large-scale AutoMACS procedures).

Training and/or services in a number of cell-based assays also are provided. These include multiwell fluorimetry and the luminometry, Evos microscopy, Vicell analysis, cytospin preparations and processing, and colony forming assay scanning and quantitative analyses.
