Facility Details

The Emory University School of Medicine Flow Cytometry Core (EFCC) provides state-of-the-art high-speed sorting, sample analysis and analyzer training facilities. Mission priority #1 is to provide the highest customer satisfaction to our clients. This Flow Cytometry Core Facility provides quantitative flow cytometric analyses on samples from a wide variety of biological matrices, e.g. blood, bone marrow, spleen, serum, plasma, solid tissues, cell extracts, etc., to support both clinical and basic research efforts on the campus and the surrounding area. These analyses will provide insight on cell function and precursors whose abundance can be monitored as biomarkers to predict and follow progression of a wide range of diseases, such as H1N1, yellow fever, dengue, neurodegenerative diseases, stem cell studies, etc. To effectively implement our technologies, we provide consultations, expert training, and support for all our systems.

Along with providing access to equipment, another goal of EFCC is to serve as a facilitator for the research community at Emory. We seek to unite diverse bio-research interests, allowing investigators to share ideas, expertise, and instrumentation. Developing new flow cytometric techniques and acquiring new cutting-edge equipment are central to our mission to serve the Emory community.

The members of EFCC have a wide breadth of interests and experience in basic cell biology, vaccine development, genetics, cancer biology, nanotechnology, immunology, pharmacology, and microscopy technique development.
