Core Facilities

Our school’s shared core instrumentation and transgenic animal facilities support research by UB faculty and investigators at our affiliated institutions. These facilities not only house state-of-the-art equipment but in many cases also provide data analysis, training and grant writing consultation.

Our instrument laboratory provides training and consultation services for researchers whose work involves flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and gel-documentation. We work closely with other core facilities to provide comprehensive and integrative services to solve the imaging and cytometry challenges presented by cutting-edge research programs.
