Overview of Services

The mission of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility is to enhance research resources and capabilities by assisting individual faculty members in their research endeavors. This will be accomplished by providing a professional, efficient, timely and reasonably priced Flow Cytometry Services as well as continuous education and consultation in the utilization of the facility. We are committed to provide support for UT Health and Mays Cancer Center programs, and promote the commercialization of our research teams' discoveries.

 

The Flow Cytometry Core is a biohazard safety level 2 (BSL-2) facility, so the core can sort all NIH/CDC designated biohazard 2 agents which include primary human cells and cell lines, transfected cell lines, and live cells containing known level-2 pathogens. All core personnel are trained and certified in proper BSL-2 safety procedures. The Flow Cytometry Core is operated and managed by three experienced persons. Collectively, they have more than 33 years of flow cytometry experience in addition to 10 years of sorting experience.
