The Cell Analysis Facility (CAF) provides research oriented flow cytometry and cell sorting services. Our goal is to provide comprehensive data collection, data analysis, data interpretation, cell sorting and education in flow cytometry to all interested investigators including non-UNMC academic and corporate investigators. Dr. Philip Hexley is the scientific director of the facility.
The Cell Analysis Facility has an extensive list of services and their associated fees, as well as information on equipment and related resources. We encourage our clients to review the policies and procedures before bringing samples to the facility.

The UNMC Cell Analysis Facility is administrated through the the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and supported with state funds from the Nebraska Research Initiative (NRI) and The Fred and Pamela Buffet Cancer Center's National Cancer Institute Cancer Support Grant . The NRI is an investment by the state to support a research base within the University of Nebraska that encourages economic growth and development in Nebraska. The NRI focuses on eight areas of research based on the potential impact of each for the economy of the state. The Cell Analysis Facility fulfills the mission of Biotechnology, Molecular Biology and Molecular Genetics research by providing essential research laboratory services that are too expensive or highly specialized for individual investigators to purchase or develop on their own. Major instrumentation has been provided by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, The University of Nebraska Foundation, the Nebraska Banker's Fund, and by the NIH-NCRR Shared Instrument Program.
