The QB3 Cell and Tissue Facility (CTAF), located in Stanley Hall, provides the cell culture equipment and instrumentation needed to grow and assess stem cells from flow cytometry to automated epifluorescence, confocal, and multiphoton imaging. The facility was established with a generous grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
The High-Throughput Screening Facility (HTSF), located in the Li Ka Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences, provides access to cell culturing space, automated liquid handling, automated plate reader and high-throughput, high-content microscopy instrumentation for screening experiments, along with tools for analysis and data visualization. Emphasis is on whole genome and sub-library siRNA screening from various sources but other high-throughput fluidics projects are welcome.
The QB3 Cell and Tissue Analysis Facility (CTAF) and the High-Throughput Screening Facility (HTSF) are directed by Professor David Schaffer, Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Biology, Bioengineering, and Neuroscience, and Director of the Berkeley Stem Cell Center. Professor Michael Rape, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, serves as a scientific adviser for the HTSF. Both facilities are managed by Dr. Mary West firstname.lastname@example.org, 510-664-4112. The HTSF facility is directly managed by Dr. Pingping He, email@example.com, 510-642-5496.
