Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Facility

The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource is committed to providing high quality flow cytometry and cell sorting services to the UNM campus and surrounding biotech community. The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource is equipped to perform the majority of standard and advanced flow cytometry applications. Collectively, these technologies provide basic, translational and clinical researchers with the ability to examine cellular heterogeneity and cell state changes in large and diverse cell populations. Additionally, the Flow Cytometry Shared Resource provides training, service, instrumentation, computational resources and additional technical guidance for all researchers who use the facility through a bi-monthly newsletter and quarterly meetings.
