Flow & Mass Cytometry Facility (SOM/CVD)


The primary goal of the CVD flow cytometry/cell sorting Core Laboratory is to ensure that University of Maryland investigators whose research projects require the use of a flow cytometer have access to such instrumentation. As this equipment is very expensive and very time-consuming to become trained on, it is much more efficient to have a facility with a dedicated operator(s) to run the equipment. Established in 1991, this facility has state-of-the-art equipment and a highly-trained and experienced staff.
