Core Facilities

Our school’s shared core instrumentation and transgenic animal facilities support studies by UB faculty and investigators at our affiliated institutions. These facilities house state-of-the-art equipment and enable cutting-edge research.

Researchers in our division make particular use of facilities including:

  • Confocal Microscope and Flow Cytometry Facility
    The Confocal Microscope and Flow Cytometry Facility (CMFCF) is a Dept. Pathology and Anatomical Sciences (PAS) service center serving the researchers in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences as well as the scientists located on the South and North Campus’s at the University at Buffalo.  We are part of the Health Sciences Collaborative Core Facilities and work closely with other PAS cores as well as the core facilities in the School of Dental Medicine to provide comprehensive and integrative services to solve the imaging and cytometry challenges presented by cutting-edge research programs.  The imaging and cytometry instrumentation installed in the new Jacobs School of Medicine site are the latest, state of art flow cytometers and optical microscopes.
  • Histology Core
    Performs all procedures related to tissue preservation and histological analysis, including training on cryostat use and other protocols.
  • Institute for Healthcare Informatics
    Equips researchers with a HIPAA-compliant computing environment, healthcare datasets and analytic and security consulting.
  • Next-Generation Sequencing and Expression
    Offers high-throughput, next-generation sequencing and gene-expression analysis services, including 3’-expression, miRNA, exon and gene arrays.
  • Stem Cell Sequencing/Epigenomics Analysis
    Characterizes and identifies epigenetic and transcription signatures of stem cells and their derived progeny using Next-Gen sequencing.
