Our Laboratory Resources

Stanford University Core Research Facilities

Below are some of the Stanford University core facilities we work with.

The Human Immune Monitoring Center (HIMC)

HIMC provides standardized, state-of-the-art immune monitoring assays at the RNA, protein, and cellular level, as well as archiving, reporting, and data mining support for clinical and translational studies. In partnership with the research community, we also work to test and develop new technologies for immune monitoring.

Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF)

The Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF) provides microarrays and microarray services to researchers within the Stanford community and beyond. The facility also provides 24/7 access to instruments, equipment and software utilized within the microarray field. We support all arrays based on a microscope format including Agilent, Illumina, Nimblegen, and arrays produced by SFGF. Besides printing cDNA and oligonucliotide microarrays, the facility can also print arrays of your material in a high throughput fashion, including proteins, peptides, antibodies, cell lysates, siRNAs, etc. 

Stanford University Mass Spectrometry (SUMS)

The laboratory is named in honor of a generous gift from Vincent and Stella Coates, given through the Stanford School of Medicine to support the mass spec & proteomics facility as a shared core resource. It is a BioX core, embodying the Bio-X spirit of interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. It is also partially supported as the Proteomics Shared Resource of the Stanford Cancer Institute. The laboratory's expertise and support are available to researchers throughout Stanford University & Medical Center and worldwide.

Protein & Nucleic Acid Facility (PAN)

The PAN Biotechnology Facility offers a diverse array of instrumentation and technical capabilities and plays a significant consultative role in the application of these technologies to basic science projects. Such services include gene expression, oligo synthesis, DNA sequencing, real-time PCR, pyrosequencing, surface plasmon resonance (Biacore), peptide synthesis, protein analytics (protein sequencing/mass mapping), mass spectrometry, and antibodies.
