In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 25th, 2020. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 26th, 2020. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

UTHSA Bioanalytics and Single-Cell Core

Overview of Services

Provides standardized, high-quality services to support translational research, including pre-analytical biospecimen single cell processing and isolation procedures, as well as analytical technologies that deliver a systems-oriented perspective on the composition of a sample. Analyses focus on single-cell genomics, targeted gene expression in cell populations, and single-cell proteomics. Bulk sample platforms include Luminex bead arrays, high throughput pyrosequencing, and WES capillary Westerns. Services tailored for characterization of single cells include the following platforms:  immunofluorescence micromanipulator manual single cell isolation, C1 automated single-cell isolation/processing system, Biomark microfluidic PCR, the Helios CYTOF mass cytometry platform, and atomic force microscopy for nanophysical characterization of cells. Single-cell based informatics services are also available.

The single-cell core facility is funded by the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas: RP150600
