Scheduling and Billing

Scheduling for flow instrumentation (either sorter or a bench top analyzer) is on a first come, first serve basis.  It is essential to allow the Core lab as much advance notice as possible of the needed appointment time.  Notification of cancellations is also greatly appreciated.  

  1. If you are a first time user requesting training or are reserving time on the FACS Aria or Fortessa/Symphony (for sorting or multi-color analysis), please email the flow core staff or call the lab (312-908-1294) with the appointment request.
  2. For all approved users who have undergone training with the flow core staff, please use the NuCore online scheduler to make appointments.  
  3. Requests for data analysis / graphics production will be handled with a one week turnaround.
