Center for Drug Discovery and Innovation
Cell Biology Core
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.
