Additionally, Core staff will perform assays for investigators by arrangement. The Core operates on a cost recovery basis, and investigators provide an account that will be charged after service. Day-to-day access is through an online sign up system. Services are available to the CWRU community. The Core is allied with the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center's Cytometry and Imaging Microscopy Core. The Immune Function Core strives to make Immunology research more efficient and affordable. Investigators may obtain protocols as well as access equipment to run Cytokine ELISA's, Elispot assays, cell selections/depletions, and flow based assays.
