To use the instruments in the FGC you need to register an iLab account. Once you have created an iLab account you will be able to schedule instruments or use them on a walk up basis.
The Functional Genomic Core is open to the entire University research community as well as private reseachers.
Descriptions of the instruments in the FGC are listed on our "instruments page". The BioTek Synergy 2, Attune Acoustic Focusing Flow Cytometer, Operetta CLS, Octet Red384, and Singer RoToR HDA are available for independent use with training. Our staff will program and operate the Biomek FX to perform High-throughput cell manipulations, Liquid handling operations, Drug screening, or RNAi screening.
We try to supply the common laboratory incidentals (gloves, kimwipes, tips, tube racks, and pipettors). If your work involves a substantial amount of pipetting it is expected that you furnish your own tips. The staff will be happy to assign storage drawers to regular users of the facility.
