Core Resources for NCH and OSU Investigators
Two New Instruments Available for Flow Cytometry Core Users
NanoSight NS300: Our NanoSight NS300 instrument is a user-friendly platform for the routine characterization of nanoparticles. The NS300 provides automated analysis of the size distribution and concentration of nanoparticles ranging in size from 10 nm to 2000 nm in diameter. Our model also offers a two-laser configuration for the detection of various fluorescent dyes excited at 488 and 532 nm wavelengths. Nanoparticle research is a rapidly expanding venue for the clinical identification of biomarkers, regulatory elements, drug targets, cell therapies, and a growing list of translatable information.
Fluidigm C1: The C1 preps individual cells for genomic, transcriptional, and quantitative gene expression comparisons. In addition, the C1 system allows for captured cells to be stained and examined by microscopy for viability, surface marker, or reporter expression prior to cell lysis. It offers a significant technical advancement towards our understanding of cellular diversity that was previously unattainable. The C1 offers existing research programs a significant competitive advantage and is compatible with downstream services provided by our Genomics Core. Users will benefit from core lab support at every stage of experimentation, starting with cell preparation, and ending with data analysis.
