The mission of the flow cytometry subcore is to support all phases of experimental studies using flow cytometry including experimental design, staining panel design, laboratory procedures, collection of samples on the instrument, analysis of data and interpretation of results.
The flow cytometry core provides support for experiments utilizing flow cytometry. These can be simpler experiments using one to three colors or cutting-edge experiments using up to 18 colors. Support can be provided for all phases of these studies, including experimental design, staining panel design, laboratory procedures, collection of samples on the instrument, analysis of data and interpretation of results. Our aim is to serve as a resource to promote research in HIV and HIV-related diseases and we can provide multiple levels of support ranging from answering questions by email or phone, to providing individual training in laboratory procedures and also providing samples of specialized fluorochrome-conjugated antibody reagents.
We can also perform small or pilot experiments that may, for example, be necessary for a grant application. Please feel free to contact us.
