Our staff represents many years (>65!!) of flow cytometry experience. Each staff member attends a flow cytometry conference or training session yearly and we are happy to share our knowledge.

Access to the cell analyzers is available 24/7 for trained users.

Contact the FCSR at to obtain the training guide.

Training sessions to run the analyzers are always available. Just request an appointment and include "training" in your appointment request form. We will work with you on your data acquisition until you are ready to run independently.

All instrument training must be done by FCSR staff. If you have previous flow cytometry experience, this shouldn't take long. We need to ensure that you know the specifics of our equipment and our lab policies.
