The Flow Cytometry Core provides KI and MIT researchers with technical expertise, training and access to sophisticated instrumentation, enabling and supporting the use of a wide range of flow cytometry techniques. This technology allows simultaneous multiparametric analysis of many thousands of cells per second, enabling trained researchers to rapidly analyze complex cell populations using benchtop analysis flow cytometers. High-speed cell sorting services provide researchers with fast, objective and quantitative recording of fluorescent signals from individual cells combined with physical separation of cells of particular interest.
Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. Priority access is given to KI members, NCI-funded research projects and other contributing user groups in recognition of funding support. Depending on available capacity, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Core Leader, Glenn Paradis).
The Flow Cytometry Core is supported in part by funding provided to the Koch Institute from a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant.
