Cytometry & Cell Sorting Laboratory

Researchers partnering with NYU Langone’s Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory (RRID: SCR_019179) have access to the most powerful and adaptable flow cytometry and cell sorting technologies and instruments available. If your research requires cytometric analysis, our state-of-the-art instruments acquire optical measurements using different lasers to detect fluorophores with a high level of precision.

To reserve time on an instrument, faculty, staff, and investigators must be registered in iLab. We have also provided iLab login instructions for NYU Langone, NYU, NYU College of Dentistry, and external users.

Requests and Reservations

Request services or reserve instruments using our iLab platform.

By performing analyses and cell sorting using as many as 45 parameters, you can measure different aspects of a cell or particles in real time and with high throughput. This allows applications including immunophenotyping, cell cycle analysis, and intracellular fluorophore detection. Our self-service cell analyzers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in several convenient locations across NYU Langone.

Our cell sorting technologies also allow you to physically isolate cell populations of interest from a sample you provide, enabling downstream applications such as cell culture, RNA microarray analysis, and single cell cloning. Our biosafety level 2 and level 3 laboratories allow for safe sorting of viable biohazardous materials.

All of our technologies can be tailored to your research needs, and our highly skilled cytometrists are available to help you plan your experiments. We offer online and hands-on training in the use of cell analyzers and analysis software.
