The Flow Cytometry Core Facility is housed in Jordan Hall (Room 2011 and 2013) and provides all investigators at the University of Virginia access to high quality, cost effective flow cytometry services. 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 the University.
With state of the art instrumentation, such as the CyTOF 2 mass cytometer and the BD Influx Cell Sorter, the facility offers up to 6-way high-speed cell sorting and complex analytical services. In addition, the facility has a FACSVantage SE TurboSort DIVA capable for 4-way high-speed cell sorting; two 2-laser 4-color FACSCalibur bench top analyzers; a Cytek upgraded 4-laser 10-color FACSCalibur; a 9-color CyAn ADP LX benchtop cytometer, an LSRFortessa with 17 fluorescent detectors, an ImageStreamX Mark II imaging flow cytometer and two Luminex MAGPIX bead-based multiplex analyzers .
Researchers have the option, once trained, of performing their own acquisition/analysis or utilizing the expertise of the facility’s staff to run their samples for them.
This Core is supported through the University of Virginia Cancer Center National Cancer Institute P30-CA044579-23 Center Grant (please reference this grant number in all publications).
