The flow cytometry facility is a shared resource facility providing cell analysis and sorting to the entire UT Southwestern campus. The facility offers training of investigators, consultation of experimental design, data acquisition, data analysis, cell sorting, and data management. The facility is equipped with eight benchtop analyzers for user operated data acquisition and four sorters which are staff operated. The cytometers allow for up to 18 fluorescent colors capacity on both analyzers and sorters.
Mandatory training by facility staff is required for all users. After training users are granted access to run the benchtop analyzers and utilize analysis computers. Training is $100 for the Scan and Caliburs and $150 for the Canto, CyAn, LSR II, and ImageStream. Training should be scheduled when an experiment is available.
