David and Etta Jonas Center for Cellular Therapy

The CAT Facility manages the Jonas Center flow cytometry equipment located in the S301 satellite facility in the Billings Hospital. Any user can access the instrument, however, Jonas Center members have priority on scheduling every day from 1PM to 5PM. Walk-ins by non-Jonas Center members are allowed when the instrument is not booked during that period.
