Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Core
The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Core provides a wide range of services related to cell sorting and analysis. This includes everything from routine fluorescence analysis to interactive custom design of innovative analysis and sorting protocols that address the specific needs of individual investigators. The resource manager closely follows the analyses performed by the core facility, insuring quality control and advising facility users on approaches to experimental design and data analysis. This shared resource maintains a stable base of instrumentation, expertise and trained personnel and currently provides services and training for multiple users in 59 research groups from 21 departments at VCU. It has had a major impact on cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center for over 30 years.
In addition to our traditional expertise in cell sorting and analysis, the Flow Cytometry core is pleased to now offer support for protein interaction studies utilizing our BiaCore T100 the Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) instrument, as well as Microplate lumininescence capability with our Perkin Elmer TopCount system.
