Welcome to the UNC Flow Cytometry Core Facility

Facility Overview

The UNC Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FlowCore) provides state-of-the-art flow cytometry and related services to the entire UNC-CH research community as well as to others in the Research Triangle Park area. A skilled staff provides help with sample acquisition, sorting, data analysis, and experimental design. Training is available to enable investigators and their staff to run the analyzers themselves at reduced cost. A major part of our mission is to teach this technology to investigators, students, and staff. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about flow cytometry, if you want to know if you can use it in your research, how to design experiments, prepare samples, or how to analyze your data.

The core is located in the basement of the Marsico Hall, 125 Mason Farm Rd, Chapel Hill, NC. (Directions)

What's New:
The 2 Attune NxT are expected to be installed in June 2017 and training should begin shortly thereafter.
The Thurston CyAn will move to Marsico Hall in July, replacing the Marsico 2 CyAn which will be decommissioned.
The Thurston CyAn and the Marsico 1 CyAn will remain in the core at least until mid-2018.
The AutoSampler will increase acquisition efficiency and the pricing for the Attune NxT is expected to be lower than that of the CyAns.
