Flow cytometry

Flow cytometry (FACS Core Facility, FCF)

The central Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCF) provides all scientists across all institutes with access to established and innovative methods and instruments for their respective scientific questions. The strengths of flow cytometry lie in the rapid acquisition of a wide range of parameters of cells or other particles in suspension: this allows detailed analysis at the single cell level and thus also the performance of complex experiments and the use of heterogeneous samples with good statistical validation of the results. We offer flow cytometric data acquisition/analysis of multicolor samples at our analyzers as well as sorting of up to 4 target populations simultaneously from one sample at the sorters.

Our two facilities are affiliated with the University Dermatology Clinic (Tal Clinics) and the Medical Clinic (IM2, Berg Clinics). Both locations can be used by all interested research groups of the Faculty of Medicine and the entire University of Tübingen regardless of their own location. This applies equally to external, non-university users from industry and research.

Flow cytometry (FACS) is an important analytical method for the precise phenotyping of cells for numerous diagnostic and scientific questions. Complex applications and developments in flow cytometry have made both FACS analysis and FACS-based cell sorting a challenging task. High-end instruments and adequate software are able to handle even complex tasks.
