The flow core looks to capitalize on her success heading into 2023, “For the next year, we are eagerly looking forward to working with our new Symphony S6 sorter: expanding our capabilities to run bigger panels and collect more populations (6 way). We are also planning to launch a new service next year to run labeled and unlabeled exosomes using the Cytoflex LX,” remarked Dr. Miranda.

“Dr. Miranda is a talented and experienced scientist who brings to the ICBR her enthusiasm, her great work ethic and her dedication to excellent customer service.  She is outstanding at providing advice and consultation to our UF research community in flow cytometry and confocal microscopy, and is committed to engaging in a continuous strategic process aimed at improving, upgrading, and expanding our service portfolio in Cytometry.”
