The mission of the UC Davis Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Laboratory is to provide access to expertise and instrumentation for analytical flow cytometry, cell sorting, and laser scanning cytometry to all researchers at UC Davis, including members of the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, and to biotech companies and other research organizations.

Research support for flow cytometry and cell sorting

Cell sorting and analytical cytometers are located at three sites in Davis and Sacramento for research use on a recharge basis. The Davis and Sacramento labs are managed by Bridget McLaughlin, technical director and Jonathan Van Dyke, technical manager, who operate the cell sorters for assisted sorting on an appointment basis and provide training to investigators in acquiring data on the analytic cytometers. With a combined 30+ years of flow cytometry expertise, we can advise on experiment design for flow cytometry, provide training to enable independent use of the analytical cytometers, and familiarize investigators with popular data analysis software tools such as BD Diva and CellQuest, FlowJo, ModFit and iBrowser.
