The Flow Cytometry shared resource stays at the leading edge of technology. Close ties to industry allow us to offer users early access to new reagents and instrumentation. We help users realize a range of experimental goals, from fully sterile cell sorting for therapeutic applications to whole-cell mass spectrometry, diagnostics and early-stage clinical trials.
Expert staff members consult at every step of the process, from experimental design — aiding scientists on panel design, and marker and color choice — to data analysis and troubleshooting. As the only flow cytometry facility in the Pacific Northwest that provides therapeutic cell sorting, we collaborate closely with Fred Hutch’s Therapeutic Products Program to support the isolation of cells for Phase 1 clinical trials of cellular immunotherapies.
