Facility FACS Sorting

Welcome to our cell sorting facility!

Based on our own research focus, we offer a strong expertise in both preparative and analytical cell sorting from single cell cloning up to complex immunological investigations.

Customized for your specific research questions, we will assist with choice of device, panel design/optimization and gating strategy, optimization of sample preparation and data analysis.

We are allowed to work under gene safety level S2 and biological safety level S2 (reported bacterial strains) enabling for sorting of patient material and bacterial particles. Extracellular particles/exosomes and lipid droplets are two further examples supported by the high small particle resolution is of our devices.

Below you will find a short description of our devices to give you only a brief impressions of your possibilities.

Please, feel free to contact us via eMail or phone.
