The Flow and Image Cytometry Facility is partially supported by the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, therefore, discounted rates apply for RPCI faculty and academic collaborators. Additional support is received from the Roswell Park Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) therefore; additional discounts are extended to RPCI Faculty with CCSG membership status. The information below only includes the most common hourly rates for instruments and services available to our users. Rates are adjusted annually by 3%. For additional information on pricing for services that are project-specific, for example Luminex analysis and sample preparation services, please contact the facility at (716) 845-8471.
