MDACC Science Park Flow Cytometry and Cell Imaging Core

Overview of Services

The Flow Cytometry and Cell Imaging Core Facility in the Department of Epigenetics and Molecular Carcinogenesis at Science Park provides cutting-edge resources to dissect the cellular and molecular mechanisms of developmental and disease processes. Flow cytometry allows researchers to quantify and isolate rare viable cell subsets from heterogenous populations in single-cell suspensions based on differential expression of surface antigens. Other flow cytometry applications include: cellular phenotyping by multiparameter cytofluorimetric analysis, sorting of fluorescence protein-tagged cells, assessing apoptosis and cell cycle status, the identification/isolation of stem and cancer stem cells (e.g., marker positive, side-population, etc.) and the deposition of single cells. Multispectral confocal imaging permits high resolution imaging of cells and expression/localization of molecules of interest in a physiologically relevant context in situ. Additional confocal applications include microirradiation to study DNA-damage repair, 3D reconstructions and time-lapse imaging of dynamic cell and molecular processes. The FCCIC also offers individualized training on all instruments and assistance with data analysis and experimental design.
