Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry is a highly quantitative high throughput technique to accurately detect and quantitate various cell components at the single cell level. The Flow Cytometry core facility is located on the third floor of the PBS building and is equipped with the necessary instrumentation for your cell analysis and sorting needs. Read more.

Genomics

Mass Spectrometry

Mass Spectrometry is considered the gold standard in drug and metabolite analysis, with the advantages being its ability to detect drugs/metabolites at very low concentrations, its ability to distinguish a specific drug/metabolite from all other compounds in a biologic sample, and its speed, meaning a short turnaround time for results.

Microscopy

The capability of confocal microscopy is performing optical sectioning of thick biologic samples (tissues or cells) and three-dimensional reconstruction of images that are collected. Read more.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is a powerful technique for investigating the structure of molecular entities, primarily those in solution, by radio-frequency interrogation of the sample held in a powerful magnetic field. NMR has been used extensively in drug screening and lead identification. Read more. Request for Sample Analysis
