Facility Overview

The Cellomics and Toxicogenomics Research Laboratory (CTRL) has been established to provide RCMI investigators and other JSU faculty and students, with state-of-the art instrumentation that would allow them to perform laser-based flow cytometric analysis and cell sorting, as well as microarray analysis of gene expression in connection to human diseases. Hence, the application of flow cytometry and modern genomic DNA microarray-based technology is providing an excellent opportunity to CTRL users to examine alterations in gene expression patterns associated with environmental exposure, as well as to study the molecular mechanisms and biochemical effects associated with cellular responses to toxic exposures.

Specific Aims

The specific aims of the CTRL are:

  1. To provide RCMI investigators, faculty, and students, with a state-of the art flow cytometry and DNA microarray-based infrastructure to conduct cutting edge biomedical research. 

  2. To enable JSU to ensure and continue to be in compliance with the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, 2002, the PHS Policy on the Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and the Animal Welfare Act.

  3. To provide access to state-of-the art equipment, service, and training in flow cytometry and DNA microarray.

Resources and Environment

The CTRL is located in the John A. Peoples (JAP) Building. The current resources in facility include:   

  1. Becton Dickinson Biosciences Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting System -FACS Vantage

  2. Becton Dickinson Biosciences Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting System -FACS Calibur

  3. Phosphoimager

  4. Confocal Microscopy System
