With board-certified specialists and a nationally recognized faculty, Auburn provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your animal at the level only rivaled at a university medical center.
Cutting-edge animal health care, clinical trials to develop new, safe, and effective treatments, and the most advanced training availble to veterinarians, benefit not only the residents of Alabama, but our nation and our world.
Strong relationships with referring veterinarians foster the very best care for both patients and clients. Challenging cases that require comprehensive diagnostics, imaging or therapies are sent to the hospital by your family verinarian. This relationship ensures that animals receive the benefit of the latest clinical trials, research and treatment protocols available.
The College of Veterinary Medicine prides itself in meeting the needs of not only its students, but one of its greatest assets- its employees. Resources available here are aimed at providing a comprehensive guide to meeting employee needs, and include information such as the Student/Faculty Directory, Media Resources, Campus Safety Procedures, IIT, etc.
From the early work of Dr. Charles Allen Cary more than a century ago, to the development of some of the world's most advanced veterinary programs, Auburn has influenced the character and scope of veterinary medicine.
The country's seventh oldest veterinary school and the oldest in the South, Auburn today boasts one of the nation's preeminent institutions for research, teaching, diagnosis, and treatment in many specialties of small and large animal medicine.
All activities associated with students in the professional veterinary degree program are coordinated through the College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Academic Affairs. These activities include, but are not limited to:
MoFlo - Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility Description for use in Grant Proposal Preparation
Flow Cytometry Core Facility at AuburnUniversity:
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility consists of the newest generation of flow cytometers, a new 9 color, 11 parameter Beckman Coulter MoFlo XDP equipped with 405, 488 and 642 nm lasers. This instrument was selected because of its greatly improved analytical sensitivity/facility, low coincidence rate and high sorting capability/rates. The MoFlo system allows rapid and efficient sorting and more complex analytical approaches. As a safety feature this system provides effective control of aerosol production through aggressive filtration. Summit software is used for analysis and provides excellent facility in analyzing complex populations of cells. The core is supervised by Dr. R. Curtis Bird who serves as director of the facility and staffed by an experienced full-time flow cytometry manager. An advisory committee of experienced PIs with significant interests in cytometry advises in the management of the core facility to ensure it continues to serve the needs of the research community. Cytometry and cell sorting is provided on a cost-reimbursement basis subsidized for all users at a cost of $50/hour to promote use of and access to the facility. Dr. Bird and the facility staff provide consultations as needed in protocol design and development as well as refinement of sample preparation protocols and data analysis. Summit software training and workshops are also offered to facilitate development of applications by new cytometry user/clients.
