The Bayview Flow Cytometry Core Facility was established in 2008 to serve the biomedical research needs of Johns Hopkins Investigators located on the Bayview Campus. The core is managed by Raffaello Cimbro who brings the highest standard of flow cytometry experience to the modern biomedical science. The core is uniquely embedded among research groups interested in problems related to immune based human diseases and relevant animal models and promotes an interactive and collaborative approach. We also have an extensive research base, and considerable expertise in neuroscience. The facility instrumentation has the capability of performing simple and complex multiparametric (up to 14 fluorochromes) analysis of cell subpopulations and high speed sorting. We are presently equipped with a special order FACSAria cell sorter (BD BioSciences) with 14-fluorescence parameter capability, a four color FACSCalibur (BD BioSciences), and 3 analysis workstations for off-line data analysis. The FACSAria and FACSCalibur are maintained using the highest standards of quality control and are available for analysis to certified and trained users. Cell sorting is performed by flow core staff only. Our staff offers free consultation services.
The Johns Hopkins Bayview Flow Cytometry Core Laboratory was formed to support the research initiatives of Johns Hopkins Bayview Faculty and staff. We are committed to providing state-of-the art technology and staff support to address current flow cytometry and cell sorting applications and new strategies. Please feel free to contact us for flow cytometry and cell sorting consultation services.
