Flow Cytometry Core

About Us

Flow cytometry and fluorescence activation cell sorting is a powerful method to study and purify cells for wide applications in immunology, cell biology and other fields of biology.

How We Support

The mission of the Flow Cytometry Core is to provide researchers at CHLA and other institutions with the ability to perform multi-parameter analysis and cell sorting on single-cell suspensions to asses cell morphology, phenotype, and function through standard and custom applications in support of biomedical research. With a focus on providing professional, efficient, timely services, continuous education and consultation in the utilization of this technology, the Flow Cytometry Core is committed to enhancing research capabilities by assisting investigators in their research endeavors. 

Please review the general Core Use Policy.


This facility utilizes CoreConnect, a web-based core management system that supports the centralization of services and equipment scheduling, billing and usage tracking. Use of the new system is required for all core users, core leaders and core staff.
