URMC / Research / Flow Cytometry / Services / Consulting


Open office hours are currently on hold, please email Matt for an appointment.  Office hours are held twice weekly in room 3-4103 for consultation.  Tuesday 1-2pm with Tim Bushnell and Thursday 11am-12pm with Matt Cochran.  No appointment is necessary and time is allotted as needed.

The following services are available to any Flow Core user:

  • Experimental Design: How to develop and implement a polychromatic flow cytometric assay. Typically 1/2 to 1 hour.
  • Instrument Training: A requirement before anyone can have independent and after-hours access to the instrumentation. Generally this will take a few visits on the instrument and details can be found on the training page.
  • Software Training: We offer support on the use of multiple software programs including FACSDiva, FCS Express, IDEAS and Flowjo. We also offer consultation with regards to high dimensional analysis.
  • Data Analysis: Analysis of complex datasets. This analysis also includes cell cycle analysis, proliferation assays, and other complex analytical applications. Since each investigators analysis can be complex, typical turn-around times for this service are 1 week.
  • Assay Development: Have an interesting problem that you think only flow can answer? Trying to replicate another researchers work? Have an idea for complex flow applications?  Feel free to contact me for more information.
