iLab Operations Software Support will be staffed at reduced levels during the week Feb. 25 - Mar 1. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically. To escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket / email subject or if dialling the iLab support phone press "1" when prompted (regional specific numbers can be found here). You can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information.

Flow Cytometry

Flow Cytometry Center Of Research Excellence

Our mission is to provide all members of the ISMMS community with outstanding research cytometry Service, to disseminate technical knowledge through Education, and to advance scientific discovery through Innovation. The medium of our mission is flow cytometry.


The ability measure high-order multidimensional data with single cell granularity is the scientific power of flow cytometry. To acquire these measurements at rates of thousands per second and virtually unlimited population size is the statistical glory of flow cytometry. To use this data and return a highly purified subpopulation of live functional cells is the magic of cell sorting.


Given this power, the CORE provides all members of the Mount Sinai community the instrumentation and subject expertise to incorporate flow cytometry and cell sorting into any research project. Please explore these web pages to learn more about our amazing services and brilliant people.


 Access and Training


New users of the Flow Cytometry CORE iLabs site can download the User Guides in the section below titled "Links and Resources." 

The CORE operates a structured training program that is detailed on the Request Services page. The sequence of classes begins with the Introduction to the CORE


 About Acknowledgments


The lifeblood of an academic institution is publication. Likewise the metric of success of a shared resource facility is acknowledgement. Please remember to acknowledge the contribution of the CORE to your publications. Authorship, however, should follow the guidelines set forth in the Faculty Handbook.
