Cytometry & Cell Sorting Laboratory Education & Training

Experts at NYU Langone’s Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory provide opportunities for online and hands-on training in instrument operation and in the latest flow cytometry applications. While some instruments, such as the LSRII UV or LSRII HTS and FACSAria I self-service sorter, require training before use, we strongly encourage new research partners to explore the appropriate resources before reserving any instrument.

Introduction to the Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory

Our Introduction to the Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory online course provides information about our technologies and policies, as well as links to gain access to our labs, scheduling system, and future classes.

Here’s how to access the course:

  • Log into atNYULMC, NYU Langone’s online portal, with your Kerberos ID and password.
  • Go to FOCUS from the menu on the right.
  • Click on “Browse” in the top right corner, select “Learning Catalog.”
  • Click the search icon in the right top corner.
  • Search for “Cytometry.”
  • Click “Launch.” The course takes about 20 minutes to complete.
  • Pop-ups may need to be enabled in order for the course to launch.

Cytometry and Cell Sorting 101

This course covers the basic theory of flow cytometry, instrumentation, and data analysis and provides examples of the various applications of this technology. To reserve a spot in the next course, complete the Cytometry and Cell Sorting 101 signup form.

See the events listing below or access the Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory events calendar for future training dates.

LSRII Certification Course

If you intend to use our LSRII UV or LSRII HTS instrumentation, you must attend one of our regularly scheduled training sessions, held on the third Thursday of each month from 10:00AM to 12:00PM. This class covers lab policies and tips for using the LSR II instruments.

Please use iLab to reserve your spot in an upcoming class.

FACSAria II Self-Service Course

Researchers planning to use this instrument should have a working knowledge of both flow cytometry and FACSDiva software, including the ability to design a basic FACSDiva experiment from scratch. We require all users of the FACSAria II self-service instrument to complete a training course, and the LSR II certification course is a prerequisite.

Only two students at a time can take this two-day class. Each student completes a practical examination to the instructor’s satisfaction in order to reserve this instrument. The fee for the course is $1,030 for NYU Langone faculty and staff; external users, please contact us at cytometry@nyulangone.org.

If you’re interested, please request training via iLab.
