Welcome to Systems Biology

Flow Cytometry

Our facility houses two state-of-the-art BD analyzers, one with high-throughput capability, a Stratedigm benchtop analyzer with high-throughput capacity, a high-speed BD cell sorter, and both Mac and PC workstations for data analysis. Sorting services are offered through the facility, as are instrument and software training.

What's New?

The Stratedigm S1400 4-laser, 13 color benchtop analyzer is here! It has been outfitted with an integrated plate loader and the plate hotel is soon to follow, to enable autonomous analysis of plate-based samples over extended periods of time.


Visit our Education page for seminars, tools, and links to various flow cytometry resources. New NANOCOURSE presentations on Introduction to Flow Cytometry and Introduction to Experimental Design have been posted!!

The next Introduction to Flow Cytometry & Experimental Design NanoCourse will be held when we have a minimum of 25 students interested in taking the course: Email Jodi Moore for more info...

New Reagents

The core facility has been optimizing Invitrogen's Vybrant DyeCycle reagents to facilitate sorting of viable cells on the basis of cell cycle phase (see image below). If this application is of interest to you, please let us know.
