The Flow Cytometry Core uses iLab for scheduling equipment. Your PI needs to have registered with iLab before lab members are able to schedule an appointment.
The FacsAria and MoFlo are cell sorters and can be scheduled two weeks in advance. Appointments can be made from the times of 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with an hour off for lunch. Users cannot edit or delete their times for the sorters and should contact the lab to make changes. Cancellations for the Aria and MoFlo should be made 24 hours in advance; otherwise, there is a 1 hour cancellation charge.
The FacsCelesta, LSRII and Aurora are cell analyzers and can be reserved one month in advance. Trained users who feel confident to use our analyzers after hours (after 5 PM on the weekdays and the whole weekend) may do so. Any user that signs up before 8:30 AM on the LSRII should turn the machine on early, since it requires at least 10 minutes for warmup. The Aurora should be allowed to warm-up for at least 30 minutes. Users can edit and delete their times for the analyzer calendars.
There is a Kiosk workstation for starting and stopping your time. The billable time will be based on the Kiosk.
Here is the link to the iLab calendar for the Flow Cytometry Core:
