The Immune Function Core Facility is dedicated to providing researchers with the necessary tools to successfully perform immunoassays. The Core provides access to equipment (flow cytometers, automated magnetic bead cell sorter, infrared imager and ELISA plate reader & washer) and technical support. The Cores services are available not only for CFAR members, but also for the rest of the CWRU research community.
The Immune Function Core strives to make immunology research more efficient and affordable. Investigators may obtain protocols as well as access equipment to run Cytokine ELISA's, Elispot assays, cell selections/depletions, and flow based assays.
Additionally, the Core technician can perform immune assays for investigators. These include ELISA, Elispot, cell selections/depletions and flow cytometry.
Researchers who utilize CWRU/UH Center for AIDS Research services are strongly encouraged to cite the CFAR in all publications resulting from the use of CFAR services. CWRU/UH Center for AIDS Research: NIH Grant Number: P30 AI036219.
