A while back I had asked core facility managers if they would supply me with their facility staffing and equipment numbers .

I received information from 51 core cytometry facilities worldwide. The information is from academic research labs not performing clinical sample analysis, with one industrial lab represented.
A number of labs asked me not to disclose their identity, so I will provide this information as a statistical summary.

As of July 30, 2009
51 labs responding:

Cell Sorters    mean= 2.29, std dev= 1.45
Analyzers       mean= 4.25, std dev= 2.47
FTEs            mean= 3.02, std dev= 1.56

I hope that this information provides those with understaffed labs the additional documentation needed to bring in more help.
Thanks to all of the respondents.
