Flow Cytometry Facility-Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences

The mission of the College of Veterinary Medicine Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core Facility at Texas A&M is to provide the highest quality flow cytometry data, data analysis and cell sorting services for the faculty and staff of The Texas A&M University System and surrounding universities and companies. We currently provide training for flow cytometer (analyzer) use and data analysis using the FlowJo software. We also provide staff-assisted flow cytometry (analyzer) data acquisition, cell sorting, and data analysis. The core provides experimental design and consultation services. We also welcome collaborations on a case by case basis.
