Moody Foundation Flow Cytometry


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.
