Welcome to The University of Massachusetts Medical School
Flow Cytometry Core Lab
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility was established in 1981. It then consisted of one tiny room within the tissue culture facility which housed a BD FACS II sorter. Today the Core Facility houses five cell sorters and six analyzers as well as an Amnis FlowSight imaging cytometer. The Facility has a professional and courteous staff to answer technical questions and assist you in setting up flow cytometry experiments. Our staff can assist in cell sorting, acquiring and analyzing data as well as training for self-use of select sorters, analyzers and software. The Core Facility now has BSL-2+ and BSL-3 sorting available. Feel free to drop in or call to discuss your experimental needs.
