Cell Biology Core

Overview

The cell biology core, a combined effort between CDDI and USF College of Medicine, provides researchers access to cell sorting and analysis for target characterization and validation. The BD FACS Aria II sorter is BSL2 capable permitting levels of safety in cell sorting not available in most flow cores. A second BD Canto II flow cytometer provides automated sampling for analytical flow cytometry. Fully automated Zeiss Axiovert 100 deconvolution and Lecia DM 6000 (laser microcapture) microscopes provide tools for protein analysis with particle resolution >0.5mm.
