Flow Cytometry Core


Salk Institute for Biological Studies - Flow Cytometry Core - Overview


Flow Cytometry Core Facility

The Flow Cytometry Core facility is dedicated to advancing research projects requiring cell sorting and/or analysis of cell populations by flow cytometry. The core offers training on and access to shared use instrumentation for analytical flow cytometry, services for fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) as well as technical consultation and support on experimental design, execution, and data analysis.

Supported in part by:

National Cancer Institute

Acknowledging Core Support

The core has received funding from two NIH sources; it is important for future funding support that these are cited in publications. For submitting manuscripts that have made use of services or resources from this core, PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE SUPPORT by inclusion of the following information: “This work was supported by the Flow Cytometry Core Facility of the Salk Institute (RRID:SCR_014839) with funding from NIH-NCI CCSG: P30 CA01495, and Shared Instrumentation Grants S10-OD023689 (Aria Fusion cell sorter), and S10 OD034268 (Thermo Fisher Bigfoot)”. Please acknowledge core staff where appropriate and consider authorship inclusion when scientific contributions merit.

Please link each publication stemming from work performed in the core to your MyNCBI account. This will ensure that the contributions from NIH are appropriately acknowledged in renewal and continuation applications. This NIH requirement must be satisfied as part of our efforts to provide consistent access to stabling funded core resources. Information on how to link publications can be found here»
