Facility Details

As the sole resource for flow cytometry, cell sorting and state-of-the-art immunological services in the western-most IDeA state, the Molecular and Cellular Immunology Core, through COBRE support, has accelerated research productivity, in terms of publications and extramural funding. Emphasis has also been applied to developing new or customized immunological methods for COBRE Investigators and other Core users. In addition, regularly scheduled training sessions are held to enrich the educational and mentoring experience for COBRE Investigators and other faculty and students across the university and broader research community. By centralizing immunological services and resources to this Core, COBRE Investigators and other researchers will be more efficiently served and the use of expensive equipment will be maximized.

Core Services:

Flow Cytometry: Analysis and Sorting
Cell Counting, Size, and Viability
Multiplex Bead Assays: Luminex and CBA Platforms for DNA, Protein, and Antibodies Assays
Immunospot Plate Reading: ELISpot and FRNT
