The Flow Cytometry Facility is equipped with flow cytometers and cell sorters that enable researchers to examine cell samples within the range of the micron. The facility's research staff engage in experimentation, training, project collaboration, and consultation. Specifically, staff members train customers in experimental design, sample preparation, and the use of equipment, as well as provide guidance in the interpretation of results.

Newly acquired Leica SP8 DIVE Multiphoton Microscope enables deep in vivo imaging
Penn State researchers will be able to perform experiments that could not be achieved before. This acquisition will promote research in areas such as neurobiology, cell biology, microbiology, plant physiology, animal sciences and medicine, and beyond.
Material that shields beetle from being burned by its own weapons holds promise
Carabid beetles produce caustic chemicals they spray to defend themselves against predators, and the compound that protects their bodies from these toxic substances shows promise for use in bioengineering or biomedical applications, according to Penn State researchers.
