Flow Cytometry Core Facility

Flow Cytometry Core Facility

    The Flow Cytometry Core Facility provides the research community with the technology to selectively phenotype and sort specific populations of cells. Using specific fluorescent probes, researchers are able to monitor several aspects of their cell population including: phenotype, cell viability, proliferation, cell cycle and cell activation. In addition, discreet population of cells can be identified and sorted.

    The Core has been used to address questions in adult and embryonic stem cell research, regenerative medicine, cellular immunology, cell biology, chemical carcinogenesis, radiology, human tumor cell cycle kinetics, mechanisms of drug action and differences between patient samples and normal donors.

    The facility is maintained by Lora Barsky, an experienced manager who can provide instrumentation training, assistance with data analysis and consultation for experiment design and implementation. Lora can be contacted on (323) 442-7942 or by email at lbarsky@usc.edu.
