Flow Cytometry Facility awarded NIH SIG

The Flow Cytometry Facility is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Shared Instrumentation Grant from the NIH, which will be used to pay off the LSRII-Blue we have been leasing since April 2008. The facility recognized the necessity for such a high-end benchtop analyzer that we proceeded to lease the LSRII while resubmitting the grant proposal for the instrument. Needless to say we are very happy with the outcome of this proposal, and with the performance of the LSRII thus far. When publishing data using the facility's LSRII, you may acknowledge the facility as well as the SIG grant number for this instrument, 1S10RR24570-01A1.
