Flow Cytometry Core :: The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital

Flow Cytometry Core


The Flow Cytometry Core lab, located in W290 at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, offers several platforms on which to do flow analysis and/or cell sorting. Depending on the complexity of the experiment involved there are several "levels" of cytometer available to address your specific needs. In addition, Flow Jo analysis software is available on standalone computers on both Mac and PC platforms. Flow cytometry is continually expanding its applications as a research tool.

Services

Flow Cytometry has a diverse array of applications and The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's seeks to help researchers with any application they wish to pursue. As science evolves, so does the scope of flow cytometry and the facility strives to stay abreast of the latest techniques. The knowledgeable staff are here to assist you with experiment design, data acquisition, data analysis and any other questions you may have.

For the convenience of investigators at Nationwide Children's, the Flow Cytometry Core is now offering operator-assisted services and consultation. These services are perfectly geared for pilot experiments initiated by Investigators who are unfamiliar with flow-based technologies, or Investigators doing the rare flow experiment who simply wish to save time. These services are not meant to replace the regular training, education, troubleshooting and assistance that we happily provide all users, but rather, they are optional, charge-based services of convenience.
