Janis V. Giorgi Flow Cytometry Core Laboratory

Welcome to the Flow Cytometry Core Laboratory at UCLA. The Core Laboratory provides instrumentation and technical and professional assistance for performing laser-based analytic flow cytometry, image cytometry and cell sorting, as well as mass cytometry. The facility operates a large variety of instruments: one three laser BD-LSRFortessa X-20 analyzer, two five-laser BD LSRII analyzers, one three-laser BD-LSR II analyzer with a high throughput option, one ImageStreamx MarkII imaging flow cytometer, and for cell sorting, the laboratory has three BD FACSAria high-speed cell sorters. The Core facility also operates a Helios (a CYTOF system) mass cytometer. In addition, the laboratory has a RoboSep, an automated immunomagnetic bead cell separator from STEMCELL Technologies. The Core Facility is open Monday through Friday with user appointments from 9:30 AM until 5:00 PM. After hour appointments are also offered for independent users and for users with sort experiments that cannot be completed during regular business hours.
