About Us

UTHealth Houston Flow Cytometry Service Center provides training, instrumentation and data analysis software to support your single cell analysis and sorting needs. We aim to use our technical and scientific expertise to help you achieve your research goals.

We currently have two flow cytometers and one cell sorter available to our customers in two separate locations. One analyzer and one cell sorter are located in our main facility at the Brown Foundation Institute for Molecular Medicine (IMM). This location provides full services, including assisted instrument usage. Our second analyzer is located at the McGovern Medical School and is primarily reserved for unassisted operation by established users who have received instrument specific training. Both locations have access to our workstation for post-acquisition data analysis.
