Flow Cytometry Services

The Discovery Difference

The unique integration of our extensive biospecimen inventory, expert biospecimen processing capabilities, and flow cytometry services deliver a fast, cost-effective way to help you understand the phenotypic and functional biomarkers relevant in your studies. 

Our flow cytometry service projects begin with initial consultation to evaluate the cell populations, surface receptors, and intracellular markers required for the study.  Flow cytometry panels are then constructed and titrated to evaluate optimal antibody clones, fluorophores, and concentrations for the markers of interest.  Following full panel evaluation, panels are qualified on multiple unique physiologically samples to ensure optimal performance.  Functional assays, including cytotoxicity, apoptosis, proliferation, and cytokine secretion, are also available.
