Flow cytometric analysis and cell sorting
About the Flow Cytometry Core
The Flow Cytometry Core, part of the Biomedical Research Core Facilities in the Office of Research, provides instrumentation and expertise to University of Michigan investigators – and the surrounding biotech community – in a broad range of basic and medical science disciplines. Samples are prepared by individual investigators, who then deliver samples to the Core for flow cytometric analysis or cell sorting. The Core also provides assistance in grant and publication preparation, publication-quality graphics, and development of experimental designs.
No training is required to bring samples to the facility to be run by our trained technicians. However, we do offer training on all core instrumentation for those users wanting to take advantage of the discounted rate for self-operation or for those wanting to utilize the equipment during the off-hours.
First-time investigators must consult with the core manager concerning facility operating policies, and discuss projects pursuant to optimizing experimental design, sample preparation, appropriate controls, and containment of potential pathogens. For full information on getting started with the Core, please visit Instructions & Forms.
To set up a consultation, please log in to MiCores (from iLab Solutions and Agilent Technologies).
