Flow Cytometry Core
The Flow Cytometry Core in Building 37, overseen by the Laboratory of Genome Integrity (LGI), is under the supervision of Ferenc Livak, MD. Flow Core 37 supports the NCI-CCR scientific research community by providing training, instrumentation, and expertise to perform state-of-the art flow cytometry analysis and cell sorting. Currently, the laboratory houses:
- 4 cell analyzers: 1 FACS Calibur, 1 FACSCanto, and 2 LSRII Fortessa (up to 18-color analysis)
- 4 cell sorters: 2 BD FACS Arias, 1 MoFlo Astrios EQ, and 1 BD FACSAria Fusion
The analytical instruments are available to trained users on a 24/7 basis. Cell sorting is mostly performed by staff.
These instruments provide reliable and consistent service to investigators from over 35 NCI laboratories and branches (>80 principal investigators, 200 other investigators).
