The Parnassus Flow Cytometry Core assists investigators whose research requires molecular marker characterization of cells in suspension as well as the isolation of cells based on those markers. Advanced cell sorting and cytometric analyses are readily conducted by experts within the Core or by trained laboratory members.
Pathology Research Services Core Facility provides UC Irvine Health researchers with dependable and economical assistance in obtaining and analyzing human tissue, blood and serum samples. The core facility leverages the existing professional expertise and technical resources available in the facility Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine's various clinical laboratories.
The UCLA Pasarow Mass Spectrometry Laboratory is an intellectually vibrant group dedicated to the advancement of the science and training of students through innovative research and educational endeavors. As of January 2009 there are eight full-time members including two faculty, two senior technicians, two post docs, one Ph.D. students and one of undergraduate, in addition to numerous other UCLA faculty, staff and students who make frequent use of the facility and the in-house expertise. Our publication record is easily accessed via the web using Faull, KF and Whitelegge, JP as search descriptors. NSF and NIH Shared Instrument Grants over the past few years had led to the acquisition of several new instruments that complete the suite of available instrumentation. The availability of electron impact (EI), chemical (CI), atmospheric chemical ionization (APCI) and electrospray (ESI) ionization methods together in one facility is a feature of this Laboratory that is vital to the variety of chemical and biochemical research at UCLA. The Laboratory is also equipped a range of modern equipment necessary for the successful operation of a wet biochemical laboratory, including gas (capillary) and liquid chromatography (analytical, micro- and nano-bore) capability and gel electrophoresis.
The UCLA Proteome Research Center (PRC) is a full-service technology center that offers a comprehensive suite of proteomic services to the UCLA community and other partnering institutions. By bringing together state-of-the-art instrumentation and high-level technical staff, the goal of the facility is to transform traditional experimental paradigms by providing investigators access to powerful analytical workflows for systems-level characterization of complex biological systems, biomarker discovery and validation, and protein complex characterization.
