Research Flow Cytometry Laboratory

The Flow Cytometry Research Core Laboratory supports both internal and external investigators and operates within an IFR (Income Fund Reimbursable) account. The Flow Cytometry Research Core was set up in 1996 and is part of the Stony Brook University Hospital Clinical Immunology Laboratory.  The flow cytometry research core lab provides high quality, cost-effective, state-of-the art flow cytometry and multiparameter cell sorting instrumentation and associated expertise and services to investigators at Stony Brook University across both west campus and east campus, as well as several biotechnology companies at the nearby Long Island High Tech Incubator. 

Organization: The research flow cytometry core is directed by Hong Lin Smith-Jones, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Head of Clinical Immunology/Flow Cytometry and Corinne Leombruno, MS, SCYM(ASCP), Flow Cytometry Facility Bench Supervisor. The IFR account director is Evrim Erdogan, PhD, Administrative Director, Clinical Pathology.

Equipment/Resources: The Flow Cytometry Research Core Facility is located in University Hospital Level 3-Room 705 and houses four instruments with a range of capabilities:

  • FACSAria IIIu Cell Sorter (BD Biosciences) - Five lasers with 15 fluorescent detectors; can sort up to 4 populations simultaneously
  • LSR Fortessa (BD Biosciences) - 4 lasers with 16 fluorescent detectors, equipped with 96-well plate loader
  • CytoFLEX (Beckman Coulter) - 6 lasers with 21 repositionable bandpass filters, equipped with plate loader
  • FACSLyric (BD Biosciences) - 3 lasers with 12 fluorescent detectors

Scheduling: All reservations must be made in advance online through iLab.
