Core Managers

Core Management for Cytometry  

Core management plays a big role in cytometry. Often, though, core managers may struggle with educating their users on designing efficient and effective flow cytometry panels that are compatible with the equipment at their facility. FluoroFinder’s panel builder tool simplifies the panel design process, which reduces errors and saves countless research hours. 

Core Management Resources

We believe that science is best performed as a collaborative effort. The following resources are meant to support core managers in the vital role they play within institutions and labs. 

Training Videos

Our core management training videos help your researchers master the various features of FluoroFinder.

Live Tutorials

We offer 15 minute webinars on how to use FluoroFinder or you can schedule a custom training for your whole core user base.

Printouts

Print flyers, posters and other notices to post around the lab to remind your researchers to use FluoroFinder.

OMIPs

Optimized Multicolor Immunofluorescence Panels are peer-reviewed panels that may serve as good starting ideas

Create a Group

Create a group to upload example panels, review new designs and provide experiment core management from design to completion.

“The fact that FluoroFinder is linked to the specific lasers and filters available in our core is invaluable because I know that users working with this tool will be able to design experiments that are compatible with our instruments.”

Featured Core Manager—Grace Altimus

Grace Altimus is the flow core operator at Syracuse University, assisting with both the design and analysis of flow cytometry experiments. Working with the engineering department, she also coordinates lectures and laboratory exercises to educate students about cell sorting technology. Grace and Dacheng Ren, Ph.D., studied how introducing FACS to undergraduate biomedical engineering curriculum affects student learning outcomes. Their results were presented at the 2016 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in New Orleans, titled “Promoting Engineering Education Using a State-of-the-Art Research Facility.” Grace always recommends FluoroFinder to her core investigators.
