Our mission is to provide a broad array of services, instrumentation, support, education, and consultation to clinicians and basic scientists, especially in the area of translational research.
We aspire to
- the right answer, the first time, with the least variability.
We provide a wide variety of human immunology and mouse immunology services. These include up to 20-color cell subset phenotyping and intracellular staining, lymphoproliferation assays, ELISPOTs, and multiplexed cytokine determination.
We also provide operator-assisted cell sorting (FACS) and round-the-clock access to a variety of flow cytometers.
Quality control is a priority of our Shared Resource as is proficiency testing of our Technologists. We continuously conduct proficiency testing and participate in multiple proficiency testing programs.
DartLab staff are available for consultation and assistance with planning, execution, analysis and interpretation of immunological assays and multi-color flow cytometry.
We encourage users to become self-sufficient and have an active teaching and training program, including a 5-lecture flow cytometry course taught by DartLab staff.
In addition, our services are available to Pharma for clinical trial end-point assays on a fee-for-service basis. End-point assays aid in the monitoring of the trial's efficacy for treatments and prophylaxis/prevention. We consult on, and develop, customized end-point immunoassays.
