Cell Science Core

Our Lab:

The Cell Science Core (CSC) specializes in protein and small molecules analysis, cell analysis, and cell culture techniques. Services include:  2-D gel electrophoresis, 2-D DIGE, LC-MS/MS, HPLC, flow cytometry, cell and tissue culture, and immortalization of cell lines. Our staff works closely with investigators to help design, perform, and analyze experiments. Additionally, the CSC staff also offer training and assistance in flow cytometry, tissue culture, and operation many of our walk-up instruments.

The CSC is a component of the Center for Pediatric Research at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children located in Wilmington, Delaware. We are supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number P30GM114736. Any publication of data generated using the CSC services or instruments should cite the grant number (see citation).
