Welcome to the UNC Flow Cytometry Core Facility

Facility overview

The UNC Flow Cytometry Facility provides 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 sorting, data acquisition, data analysis, and consultation for experiment design. Training is available to enable investigators and their staff to run the analytical cytometers 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 Department of Microbiology & Immunology, on the 6th floor of the Mary Ellen Jones Building, 116 Manning Drive, Chapel Hill, NC.
