In 2013, The Moody Foundation donated $2.5 million to renovate, staff and buy equipment for CRI’s Flow Cytometry Facility. In recognition of that gift, the facility has been named The Moody Foundation Flow Cytometry Facility.

The Moody Foundation Flow Cytometry Facility at CRI is a shared resource committed to providing the most convenient, friendliest flow cytometry services to the scientists of CRI and UT Southwestern.

The facility provides state-of-the-art analytical cytometry and high speed sorting. Analytical and high
speed sorting instrumentation is offered in an investigator-operated format.

Our instrumentation is compatible with a wide variety of flow cytometry applications. We provide the training for research personnel to design flow cytometry experiments, to operate the instrumentation,
and to analyze the data.

UT Southwestern also has a Flow Cytometry Core Facility that supports the UT Southwestern community. The CRI flow cytometry shared facility complements the instruments available through the UT Southwestern core facility, as we have three cells sorters (two FACS Aria II SORP and one FACS Aria Fusion SORP, all in biosafety hood for sorting primary human cells) and two cells analyzers.

One analyzer is a special order FACS LSRFortessa SORP with High Throughput Sampler (plate loader) that provides fully automated and rapid sample acquisition and an enhanced dual FSC detection system (PMT + diode) with the ability to detect 0.2um particles from noise. The other analyzer is a special order (12 parameters) FACS Canto RUO with tubes loader.
