CORE OVERVIEW

The Cytometry core offers project consultingexperimental design and optimization as well as data analysis services to help researchers with large-scale and small-scale experiments acquired on our sorters and cytometry instruments. We coordinate closely with other ICBR cores (Next-Gen Sequencing, Gene Expression, Bioinformatics, Monoclonal Antibody, Electron Microscopy and Proteomics) on shared projects. Our core offers a full suite of services from staff assisted services to training courses for all users, as well as instrument training for 24/7 access to our self-service equipment usage.

The Flow Cytometry core provides a variety of tools and staff expertise for both live and fixed cell analysis. The laboratory incorporates numerous flow cytometers, from simple entry-level instruments to high-end 5-laser, 17-parameter instruments as well as a spectral cytometer to analyze your cells. We have  3 FACS ARIA’s and a SONY SH800 sorters to help users sort  your cells of interest. In addition, the laboratory offers a suite of microscopy equipment for self-service users. The microscopes are well equipped with a variety of excitation lines from near UV to red and can collect a variety of emission colors (depending on dye combinations), with viable cell time lapse and extensive computed parameter capabilities, including FRET, FRAP, image stitching, and 3D reconstruction. We offer a host of Microscope brands from a Leica SP5 Confocal, a Nikon Multiphoton Confocal system, a Nikon Live cell Imaging platform, 2 Olympus spinning Disk Confocal instruments, as well as our new Keyence BZX800.

We're hiring a highly motivated and experienced individual to serve as Scientific Director to lead our Cytometry Shared Resource Core at UF | ICBR!

UF researchers discover new way to inhibit virus that causes COVID-19
UF researchers discover new way to inhibit virus that causes COVID-19 Doug Bennett When the virus that causes COVID-19 enters the body, it hijacks cellular proteins and suppresses the human inflammatory response, allowing the virus to spread. University of Florida researchers have discovered a novel way in the lab to fight rapidly evolving strains of coronaviruses by breaking that cycle. The group created a molecular “decoy” that blocks two proteins coronaviruses use to evade a normal immune sy...

Heatstroke's long-term damage to the body
Heatstroke’s long-term damage to the body Eric Hamilton This summer, huge swaths of the U.S. have already faced record-breaking heat waves. Heat kills more people than any other extreme weather event, and deadly heat waves are getting longer and hotter as the climate warms. Staying cool – and informed – is essential. So we spoke with Thomas Clanton, a professor of applied physiology and kinesiology at the University of Florida and an expert in the effects of heat on the body, about how to...

UF nursing researcher gets to the ‘heart’ of cardiac health disparities UF Health Kyle Chambers When diagnostic tests for the heart were first created, scientists at the time did not fully consider that no two bodies are the same, especially between the sexes. According to University of Florida College of Nursing associate professor Jennifer Dungan, Ph.D., M.S.N., B.S.N, many of the current symptom profiles and lab tests for heart disease do not accurately reflect known differences in women’s he...

Plants can grow in Moon dirt — here’s why knowing that is so important The Hill Anna-Lisa Paul and Robert Ferl Humans are once again headed to the Moon. This return to the Moon means we will, for the first time, witness humans not only visiting, but living and working on the Moon. We will witness our civilization literally moving off the surface of the Earth. The lunar landings of 1969 through 1972 were short stays. The demands of getting to and returning from the Moon with the technology of tha...

A first: Scientists grow plants in soil from the Moon from UF/IFAS by Samantha Murray Scientists have grown plants in soil from the Moon, a first in human history and a milestone in lunar and space exploration. In a new paper published in the journal “Communications Biology,” University of Florida researchers showed that plants can successfully sprout and grow in lunar soil. Their study also investigated how plants respond biologically to the Moon’s soil, also known as lunar regolith, which is r...
