Flow Cytometry Core

Flow Cytometry Core Facility

 

The EVMS Flow Cytometry Core Facility provides access to flow cytometry instrumentation and expertise to support research at EVMS and the research community of Hampton Roads, including Old Dominion University, Hampton University and the American Red Cross. Two instruments are available in the facility: a Cytek upgraded FACSCalibur and an iCyt Reflection. The upgraded FACSCalibur is a 3-laser analyzer, capable of multicolor analysis of up to 8 colors, and is used for flow cytometric analysis of cells. Investigators may use the FACSCalibur on their own after training or certification by the facility staff. The Reflection is a state-of-the art, high-speed cell sorter. While capable of multicolor analysis of up to 10 colors with 3 lasers, the Reflection can perform 2- and 4-way bulk sorting of cells of interest. The Reflection is operated only by the Flow Cytometry Core Facility staff on a fee-for-service basis.  Please inquire with the facility staff for a complete Fee Schedule.  The facility is open Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
