Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Core

Mission

The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource (FCSR) provides a wide range of services related to cell sorting and analysis, 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 to provide services and training for multiple users.‌

In addition to our traditional expertise in cell sorting and analysis, the FCSR offers support for protein interaction studies using the Reichert SR7500DC Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) instrument.

Who we are

Please contact the faculty director, Dr. Rebecca Martin, to discuss how FCSR can best facilitate your scientific goals.
