Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory
It is with regret that we inform you that Ms. Janet Dow has submitted her resignation as manager of our flow cytometry, cell sorting and hybridoma facility, her last day will be February 2, 2014. Janet has been a valuable asset to our program, our department, and the university for 15 years, combining good humor with excellent technical knowledge. Janet is moving on to a new and exciting position at UNC and while we regret to see her go, we wish her much success. Additionally we are excited about the opportunity to expand our collaborations with the facility there.
With the third floor renovations underway, the flow cytometry and cell sorting facility is prepared to move from the existing location to B322 (two doors down from clinical immunology), so we had already anticipated an interruption in service with the move.
What does this mean for you as users? For flow cytometry "self service", things will be business as usual, until we move for the renovations (I'll let you know when). For clinical immunology, there will be no interruption in service. For those needing Janet to run their research flow cytometry samples, please contact her to make arrangements, training to run the samples, and get in touch with me if you have any concerns regarding your project. We will make every effort to meet your needs during this transition period.
For cell sorting needs, we anticipate an interruption in service as we find and train a new person and I apologize for this inconvenience. We are currently working with UNC-CH to negotiate access to their cell sorting facility during this transition.
We will be doing our best to have the facility up and running at full capacity as soon as possible.
