The WMed Flow Cytometry and Imaging Core provides state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in flow cytometry, cell sorting, and imaging. A skilled staff scientist provides help with instrument setup, data analysis, and consultation for experiment design. Training is available to enable investigators and their staff to run the flow and imaging instrumentation themselves.
