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
