Flow Cytometry Facility

The Flow Cytometry Core Facility housed in Pinn Hall (Room 2011 and 2013) provides all UVA investigators access to high quality, cost effective flow cytometry services.  Services include unassisted and assisted sample acquisition, cell sorting, mass cytometry (CyTOF), Luminex cytokine assays, antibody conjugation and data analysis.  By providing these services, as well as the scientific expertise necessary to effectively use this technology, the facility serves to enhance the scope and quality of scientific research performed at UVA.


The Cancer Center Support Grant currently provides a 20% co-pay for all its Cancer Center investigators. This co-pay may vary throughout the fiscal year. Those investigators who receive this support should acknowledge the  National Cancer Institute P30-CA044579-23 Center Grant in all publications.

Acknowledgement of the core facility in all publications which utilized the service of the core is customary and appreciated, as it is used as a value based metric in determining future funding.
