UTSA Cell Analysis Core

Overview of Services

The mission of the Cell Analysis Core is to provide centralized services, training, access and support to researchers in the usage of flow cytometry and confocal microscopy equipment and related services including technical training opportunities. To establish an active training and consultation program to support the use of cytomics to impact not only research productivity but the competiveness of students and fellows trained on our campus. The core partners with the Research Computing Support Group to create a data acquisition and analysis pipeline that ensures a streamlined and seamless workflow for researchers. To ensure that the full potential of core technology is realized, the Cell Analysis Core provides personal training in the use of all instrumentation, as well as the latest methods of data analysis.
