Core Facilities

Our department houses an updated instrument laboratory with analysis software. This key, convenient facility accommodates a range of microbiology and immunology research needs.

Our instrument laboratory provides training and consultation services for researchers whose work involves flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and gel-documentation.

Shared Facilities at University at Buffalo

Our faculty researchers routinely make use of the equipment, services and expertise housed in these shared UB core facilities.

Performs all procedures related to tissue preservation and histological analysis, including training on cryostat use and other protocols.
Offers high-throughput, next-generation sequencing and gene-expression analysis services, including 3’-expression, miRNA, exon and gene arrays.
Identifies proteins in cell or tissue extracts using several different liquid chromotography/mass spectrometry based approaches.

Shared Facilities at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center

At one of our major partner institutions, we have access to these key resources for collaborative projects focused on cancer biology and immunology.

Provides state-of-art bioinformatics assistance for the design, analysis, and interpretation of genomics, proteomics, and other high-resolution, high-throughput based studies for better understanding of cancer biology.
Combines expertise in statistical genetics and genomics in the design, oversight, implementation, analysis, publication and reporting of collaborative studies.
Provides multiparameter flow cytometry services for clinical diagnosis and follow-up, and to basic and clinical researchers.
Provides transgenic approaches for the systematic dissection of the genetic, molecular, cellular and physiological mechanisms underlying complex biological processes.
Provides a full spectrum of services for parallel analyses of genomes and their expression.
Provides human specimens and laboratory services for basic and translational research to further the understanding of human cancers.
Supports investigators interested in gene transfer using viral vector technologies.
