Flow Cytometry Lab

Flow cytometry research is almost always unique to each lab and investigator, so constant guidance in methodology setup is required, such as changes in laser configuration and wavelength needed.  We provide guidance and training to staff, students, post docs, and scientists in setting up research methodology, antibody choices/combination and better use of flow cytometry instrumentation.   

Flow cytometry laboratory provide testing to Blood Bank for daily quality control run of blood products. Immunophenotyping assay is also provided in patients for clinical research. This testing requires the lab to be CLIA certified so it is critical to have the documentation ready for CAP guidelines and inspection. 

Other services offered based on individual needs are discussed with the Flow cytometry manager.
