Multiple cytometric services, image flow analyses, and CyTOF analyses
Flow cytometric services are integral and critical services for the research activities of many of the center's members. As a centralized facility, the FCRF provides cancer center investigators advanced resources for analytical and investigational studies using state-of-the-art technologies.
Given the large number of users of flow cytometric services, their continued reliance on these tools, and the growing need for specialized and more sophisticated technologies, the most economical, feasible, and effective way of providing these services is through a centralized common core.
Access to a comprehensive array of flow cytometric applications—such as cell sorting both in bulk and as single cells, immunophenotypic analysis, and cell cycle analysis as well as genomic and metabolic regulation at the single cell level—is an invaluable resource for basic and clinical research in cancer biology.
At present, the FCRF houses nine different instruments that offer multiple cytometric services, image flow analyses for a varied range of research projects.
