Cell Science Core Laboratory

Core Director: 
Robert W. Mason, PhD

The Nemours Cell Science Core (CSC) Lab offers access to specialized instrumentation, training, and technical assistance in Cell Analysis, Protein Analysis, and Cell & Tissue Culture. The CSC operates most of our instruments as "walk-up instruments" that are available to use after the researcher completes a short training session. 
Cell Analysis:

  • Flow cytometry
  • Blood analysis (complete blood counts)
  • Luminometers & Plate reader instruments
  • Cell & tissue culture

Protein Analysis:

  • 2 dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-D)
  • 2-D differential in-gel electrophoresis (2-D DIGE)
  • Protein identification of 1-D bands and 2-D gel spots
  • HPLC of small molecules
  • Fluorescent scanner

The CSC is a component of the Center for Pediatric Research at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Our staff work closely with investigators to design, perform, and analyze experiments. Please contact us with any questions or to set up a meeting.
