The Flow Cytometry Center provides state of the art instrumentation and resources for fluorescent analysis of cells at the single cell level, including high-speed fluorescence-activated cell sorting. Our goal is to provide expertise in flow cytometry in the areas of experimental design, instrument knowledge and training, data analysis and cell sorting. We support the mission of NIEHS by providing the latest advances in flow cytometric technology to the institute for reducing the burden of diseases and dysfunctions associated with the environment.
