The Flow Cytometry CoRE is comprised of multiple machines from established manufacturers to provide the best range of cytometric capabilities and applications. To facilitate versatility, all BD analyzers and cell sorters use a detector configuration that allows for template portability, as well as preventing figures and data from being mislabeled in publication. The most common fluorochromes in each detector are listed in a table that can be used to choose the appropriate instrument for your samples.
All instrument usage rates are indicated at the point of reservation within the iLab.
All scheduled sessions in the iLab system are subject to a 24 hour advance cancellation period. Cancellation within 24 hours of the scheduled start of a session will result in a charge equal to the entire scheduled session time. This cancellation charge will be pro-rated based upon assumption of the cancelled time by another user.
Data Workstations - No charge
The CoRE maintains PC workstations for use free-of-charge to analyze data generated within the CoRE. These workstations have up-to-date versions of FCSExpress, IDEAS, DiVa, Spectroflo, and access to cloud services such as Fluorofinder and Cytobank, as well as Microsoft Office. Other data analysis packages may be available as beta test versions predicated on Mount Sinai’s reputation for high volume flow cytometry and broad subject matter.
Five workstations are placed in IMI13-05 and two in CSM S6-308 for use on a 24/7 schedule.
The CoRE provides a site license for FCS Express Version 7 Flow Cytometry analysis software. You may request a license and access additional resources to help you get started with FCS Express through the iLabs system in the Software Licenses section at the bottom of the Request Services tab.
