The Flow Cytometry and Confocal Microscopy Core at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., has been established to allow investigators access to state-of-the-art equipment that may otherwise be unattainable on an individual lab basis. The core consistently upgrades and obtains new equipment to remain a part of cutting-edge research. In addition to providing instrumentation, the core has dedicated staff to assist in all areas of flow cytometry and confocal microscopy.

The core is capable of running samples for users who prefer to drop off their samples and have core staff analyze them. Alternatively, users may receive hands-on training to learn the skills to run their own samples. Trained users have access to the core 24 hours a day. Mayo investigators and external research partners in the Phoenix area are welcome to use the core.
