Research Core Facility

The Research Core Facility at LSU Health Shreveport provides investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate and undergraduate students with access to a wide variety of research services, educational and training opportunities, and state-of-the-art technologies.

Located on the 6th floor of the Biomedical Research Institute, each technology is staffed by a trained research specialist.  These technologies include cellular metabolism, flow cytometry, laser capture microdissection, mass spectrometry, microarray, fluorescence, confocal, and super resolution confocal microscopy, next generation sequencing, and real-time PCR. The Research Core Facility provides assistance with all aspects of these technologies, including experimental design, protocol optimization, instrument operation and data analysis.

We welcome investigators on the LSU Health Shreveport campus, as well as those associated with other campuses, to utilize any of these technologies on a nominal fee-for-service basis.  We encourage you to contact us for more information.
