The iLab North American server has been restored and the site is now operational. Data, like submitted reservations and project requests are being migrated back into the site and we can assure you that no data has been lost. Data is being restored, starting with the most recent and as it is being added to the new search server, it will become available on the iLab site. Some items like billing invoices may not be visible on the site at this moment and during this time, users may experience some general slowness when using the site.

Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) / (SCCC)

Overview of the Core.


The Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) provides researchers with sophisticated methods for the analysis and preparative sorting of both normal and tumor cells. The facility helps researchers measure apoptosis, gene expression, drug metabolism, immune responses, and pathways of cellular activation, both normal and tumor-related.

The core maintains instruments, computer work-stations for data analysis, and related equipment to support scientists affiliated with Sylvester’s multidisciplinary research programs, as well as researchers in a wide variety of cancer-related research projects.

The facility also provides training to investigators in flow cytometric applications and cell sorting technologies.




Potential applications of this technology include:-

  • Complex 19 fluorescence parameter immuno-phenotyping
  • DNA content, ploidy and cell cycle analysis
  • Up to 17 fluorescence parameter cell sorting and single-cell flow cloning
  • High speed (10,000 – 50,000+ cells per second) and efficiency (95%+ purity) cell sorting
  • Assessment of apoptosis
  • Molecular cytogenetics
  • Cell function studies
  • Micro-biological applications
  • Multiplexed and micro-particle-based analysis
