Flow Cytometry


Updated 5/20/2020: As part of the Medical School Research Reactivation Process guidelines, a Phase 1 ramp-up will begin on Tuesday, May 26th for labs and staff who conduct research within the Biomedical Science Research Building (BSRB). The Flow Cytometry Core located within the BSRB is participating. As we start up research projects again, it is important to understand that due to mandatory social distancing guidelines, core operations will be different than in the past. New operational guidelines are outlined here. If you have any questions, please contact Managing Director, David Adams.

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.

Process

Training

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.

Consultation

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).

Reserve Instrumentation

View the scheduling calendar and reserve time on an instrument through MiCores, an online system from Agilent Technologies and iLab Solutions at umich.corefacilities.org.
