Services and Instrumentation

Overview:  The Flow Cytometry Core provides 13 main services and 10 different instrument types listed below, consisting of various core technologies including flow and mass cytometer analyzers, flow cytometer cell sorters, single cell genomic isolators, genomic analyzers, genomic library preparation equipment, as well as analysis work station and software options for analyzing your data. In addition, we also offer guidance and assistance services to help you utilize the instruments to their full potential.  Instruments with the "self" prefix indicate that you can be trained to use them yourself.  

Instrument Configurations: Machines are listed under tabs at the bottom of this sheet.

This LINK contains the configurations of all instruments in the Core.  The Summary Table (also at the bottom of the page here) will provide a matrix of all the key features of each instrument.  Click on the nickname link of a specific instrument to get a more detailed layout.  Tabs are also at the bottom listing the machine nicknames.  It is essential for planning your experiments and seeing if an instrument can detect your specific markers.  If you need to download a copy, click on "File" then "Download as" from the Google menu.  Please contact us if you have any questions or are in need of a specific filter set for your experiments.
