Resources for Investigators

Through the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center located on the campus of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, researchers have access to an outstanding array of cutting edge equipment for imaging and analysis as well as consulting support and project management services. Available technologies, to name just a few, include:

  • Applied Bio Systems Proteomics Analyzer for identifying and characterizing proteins.
  • Luminex LiquiChip for high-throughput pathogen analysis.
  • LSR2 Flow Cytometer for sorting and identifying microscopic particles within fluid samples.
  • Luminescence spectrometer and confocal microscope for imaging.

Core Facilities

State-of-the-art analytical tools are housed within our Core Facilities laboratories, which are focused on cell imaging, flow cytometry, histology and animal imaging. The laboratories are available to researchers within the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center and are also available to other researchers from outside the hospital system. Learn more about the Core Facilities, including services and usage guidelines for each.
