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.

Big Changes for ICBR Electron Microscopy Core in 2023
We are excited to announce that our EM core is going to be relocated entirely in CGRC. The move should not only offer our users additional convenience with a singular location and increased proximity to our peer cores, but the renovation will provide our users with a revamped lab space that will expand the capabilities and offerings of our EM team. We are very excited about the next steps, but there is still a lot of work left to do. EM is currently doing their best to facilitate this move while...

Study uncovers differences in saliva bacteria of students with recent suicidal thoughts Samantha Murray A new University of Florida study has found that bacteria in the saliva of college students who reported recent thoughts of suicide differed in significant ways from those found in students who had not experienced recent suicidal thinking. While there is a growing body of research on mental health and the human microbiome, this is the first study to look at bacterial differences in the sa...

Ant queens control insulin to boost lifespan, reproduction Eric Hamilton In most of the animal world, there’s a sad trade-off to make: The more babies you have, the shorter you live. But ants buck the system. The queens — the only individuals in a nest that reproduce — also live five, 10, up to 30 times longer than their genetically identical worker sisters. How do they pull off what the rest of animalkind cannot? A new study from University of Florida biologist Hua Yan and his collea...
