Flow Cytometry Center Of Research Excellence

The ability measure high-order multidimensional data with single cell granularity is the scientific power of flow cytometry. To acquire these measurements at rates of thousands per second and virtually unlimited population size is the statistical glory of flow cytometry. To use this data and return a highly purified subpopulation of live functional cells is the magic of cell sorting.

Given this power, the CORE provides all members of the Mount Sinai community the instrumentation and subject expertise to incorporate flow cytometry and cell sorting into any research project. Please explore these web pages to learn more about our amazing services and brilliant people.

About Policies

The CORE maintains an up to date set of standards and policies (SOP) available within these pages and upon request. These documents are categorized onto the following subpages:

Equipment and Rate: Details for scheduling, use, and costs for CORE equipment. Also information regarding biohazard containment within the CORE.

About Acknowledgments

The lifeblood of an academic institution is publication. Likewise the metric of success of a shared resource facility is acknowledgement. Please remember to acknowledge the contribution of the CORE to your publications. Authorship, however, should follow the guidelines set forth in the Faculty Handbook.

Policies and Procedures

The CORE maintains an up-to-date compendium of standard operating procedures (SOP) that govern our operations. These documents are available on this website and by request to the Facility Manager.
