The Flow and Imaging Cytometry Resource provides 1) fluorescence-activated cell sorting; 2) in vivo molecular imaging with IVIS SPECTRUM; 3) imaging cytometry services and extensive training to all investigator labs from the Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine, the Boston Children's Hospital and HMS scientific community on case-by-case basis. We are available for grant-funded collaborative research community in and outside BCH and HMS. Fee-for-services and training inquires should be directed to Flow and Imaging Cytometry Resource Lab Manager Kenneth Ketman (
