Flow Cytometry Core Facility

Equipment/facility: Facility

    Description

    The Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS), provides flow cytometry (a.k.a. “FACS”) and cell sorting services to investigators from Rutgers University, Princeton University and the surrounding academic and commercial communities.

    The FCCF currently has an FC-500 flow cytometer (2-laser, 5-color detection), and an ultra-high speed Influx cell sorter (4-laser, 12-colors) with sterile capability and biohazard containment.

    The FCCF provides instrumentation and expertise in flow cytometry and cell sorting. Samples are usually prepared by the investigator and brought to the Facility to be run with or without staff assistance. We also collaborate in experimental design, data analysis, and preparation of publications and grants. The services provided by the FCCF are intended to help develop strategies to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer and other genetic and infectious diseases, and to study the underlying biology of these conditions.
