The Core Laboratory provides instrumentation and technical and professional assistance for performing laser-based flow cytometric analysis and sorting and mass cytometry.

The facility operates nine instruments: one three laser BD-LSRFortessa X-20 analyzer, one five-laser BD LSRII analyzer, one three-laser BD-LSR II analyzer with a high throughput option, one two-laser FACSCalibur analyzer, one ImageStreamx MarkII imaging flow cytometer, one Helios (a CyTOF system) mass cytometer, and for cell sorting, the laboratory has three BD FACSAria high-speed cell sorters.

The Core Facility also operates a RoboSep, an automated immunomagnetic bead cell separator from STEMCELL Technologies.

In addition, the facility provides training courses in basic flow cytometry as well as DNA flow cytometry and measurement of cellular proliferation
