Flow Cytometry

Core Facilities

The Flow Cytometry Center provides state of the art instrumentation and resources for fluorescent analysis of cells at the single cell level, including high-speed fluorescence-activated cell sorting. It also provides the following services:

  • Training in both the operation and theory behind flow cytometry
  • Assistance in experimental design and data analysis
  • Sorting
