Flow Cytometry Facility

The Flow Cytometry Core Facility is a state-of-the-art scientific platform offering DBM researchers instrumentation and technical and scientific expertise, facilitating the successful application of a great variety of current flow cytometry techniques.

Our team of four specialists with more than 50 years of combined flow cytometry and research experience delivers training in instrument operation, operator-performed cell sorting procedures, advice with experimental design and assistance with data analysis.

The DBM Flow Core consists of two sites. At Hebelstrasse 20, the researchers, after training, have 24/7 access to four BC CytoFLEX, three BD Fortessas, two high-end spectral analysers (Cytek® Aurora), an imaging cytometer (AMNIS® ImageStreamX Mk II) and user-run cell sorter BD FACSMelody™. Specialist-assisted sorting is performed on two BD FACSAria™ sorters. At Mattenstrasse, we offer specialist-assisted sorting on two BD FACSAria™III sorters and self-use analysers: two BC CytoFLEX, Cytek® Aurora and one BD Fortessa.
