The Flow Cytometry Core Facility is housed in Jordan Hall (Room 2011 and 2013) and provides all investigators at the University of Virginia access to high quality, cost effective flow cytometry services. By providing these services, as well as the scientific expertise necessary to effectively use this technology, the facility serves to enhance the scope and quality of scientific research performed at the University.

With state of the art instrumentation, such as the Influx and the FACSVantage SE TurboSort DIVA, the facility offers 4-way high-speed cell sorting and complex analytical services. In addition, the facility has two 2-laser 4-color FACSCalibur benchtop analyzers as well as a 3-laser 5-color and a 4-laser 10-color analyzers. Other instruments available include a 9-color CyAn ADP LX benchtop cytometer, an LSRFortessa with 16 fluorescent detectors, an ImageStreamX Mark II imaging flow cytometer and two Luminex bead-based multiplex analyzers (100 IS and MAGPIX).

Researchers have the option, once trained, of performing their own acquisition/analysis or utilizing the expertise of the facility's staff to run their samples for them.
