Reservations for ANALYTICAL CYTOMETERS are made using the WebEvent calendar. Each lab has a shared login. Find out the username and password from your labmates. While the flow core staff has the ability to change the password, they do not have the ability to look it up. To change a password, your PI needs to email flowstaff@scripps.edu and specify what the new password should be.

Sorting Reservations

Sorting reservations are made by email. You must email flowstaff@scripps.edu.

It is highly recommended that you plan ahead for your sorts. If you need a specific instrument on a specific day, place reservations two weeks ahead. If you're simply doing a single-color sort, you may be able to make the reservation in less time, but try to place your reservation at least a week in advance. Appointment availability varies throughout the year.

Do not start any upstream processes (i.e. injections, transfections, thaws, stimulations) unless you have a reservation already made.

Please include the following information for all sort requests:
