Serving 120+ investigators with a 5 laser high speed sorter and 3 benchtop analyzers with 13+ color capabilities, the Utah Flow Cytometry Core Facility has developed a paradigm to balance productivity with quality to minimize the cost per research project, keep overall costs contained, and provide the necessary scientific support.
Central to this paradigm is a close working relationship with investigators to define their projects in the early stages of development to make optimal and efficient use of flow cytometry.
In addition to high quality and well maintained instrumentation, success of this approach requires focused efforts in three major areas: 1) education of ALL users (faculty and staff) in the science and technology of flow cytometry, 2) active involvement in the scientific development of the project, 3) continuing education for core staff.
Sorting out T, B, Monocytes, CD33+ etc for bone marrow transplant chimerism studies. Monitors engraftment of donor cells to assess graft success or desease recurrence after allogenic stem cell transplantation
Cell sorting services are provided on one of two instruments. A FACSAria-II SORP high speed cell sorter which has five excitation lasers (UV, 405nm, 488nm, 563nm and 635nm) and 13 fluorescence detectors or a 2 laser 4 color Avalon.
