Reporting Instrument Issues

The Emory + Pediatrics/Winship flow cytometry core is pleased to announce that we can offer remote support on some of our instruments.

If a staff member is available they will provide you with a zoom link for you to click on, this will open up a Zoom Meeting and allow two way communication via camera/microphone as well as screen sharing and control.

To request support:

Submit a Low priority Incident Report as usual via PPMS.
IF a staff member is available they will email you a link to click on within 5 minutes. (If you do not receive a link within this timeframe then staff are not available).
A remote session will open, you may be requested to give permission for a member of staff to share and control the screen, they will walk you through the steps.

 We hope that this will provide a quicker way to assist users to resolve most issues without an in person visit.

Support is available on the following instruments:

FACSymphony A5 – Orac (

FACSymphony A3 – Liberator (

Cytek Aurora – Zen (

Cytek Aurora – Avon (

BC Cytoflex - The Hooded Claw (
