Our facility is open to all scientists at CRI, UT Southwestern, and other interested institutions.
For untrained users, our staff is available to operate instrumentation Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Facility training courses are available for those interested in being self-operators through flow facility staff members. Training includes mastery of instrumentation and analysis software. Flow cytometers are relative measurement devices; therefore, outcomes depend on proper setup and use.
For qualified self-operators, the facility is open 24/7.
To schedule time with our instruments, please visit CRI’s PPMS.
Training needs to be requested on CRI’s PPMS system and will be done on a first-come, first-served basis.
Training is recommended if you will be using our instruments once a week for at least six months. Training is three sessions for analyzers and sorters. Each session is 1½ -2 hours one to one on the machine.
Before your scheduled training time on the machine, you will be required to complete all sections of WORK-FLOW Flow Cytometry Essentials eLearning (< 2h). Information on how to access this eLearning will be sent to you via email after you have requested training. The cost of the training is $75 plus time on the instrument.
