ECU Cytometry Core Home

Welcome to the Cytometry Core Laboratory at East Carolina University.  The Flow Cyometry Core Facility was established in 1987 with the goal of providing investigators at East Carolina University (both Medical School and East campus researchers) access to state-of-the-art cell analysis technology.  The ECU Flow core facility now houses five cytometers (including a high-speed cell sorter and a four- laser, eleven-color analyzer), a confocal microscope, and a laser scanning cytometer.  The facility is available to all ECU researchers, operating as a fee for service laboratory.  Training is available to enable investigators and their staff to run the analytical cytometers themselves.  The facility is located on the fourth floor of the Brody School of Medicine in rooms 4W-37 and 4W-39.  The director and administrator of the facility is Douglas Weidner, Ph.D.  To learn more about the facility or to schedule a training session, contact Dr. Weidner at 744-3245, or email
