Guava easyCyte Sign-up Calendar

To get a log-on for the sign-up calendar and to be trained please contact Anna at (336) 256-0574 or via email.

Whenever you are done with your experiment please run a FULL cleaning cycle. Please also leave a full tube of water in the back position so that the flow cell remains submerged. This is important for extending the life of both the flow cell and the pump.

DO NOT remove the flow cell from the machine. If you suspect your flow cell is clogged or if your acquisition stops immediately, contact Anna.

Currently there is a $20 fee per hour of usage associated with using the flow cytometer. Billing will occur quarterly. External users to the department will be billed upon completion of usage.
