In 2018 the Flow Cytometry Core Facility was able to acquire five new instruments.
A FACSAria Fusion cell sorter, a second LSRFortessa cell analyzer and an ImageStream image cytometer were granted by the DFG through a large device application. (“Forschungsgroßgeräte” nach Art.91b GG)
Special thanks goes to the excellence cluster “ImmunoSensation”and to the SFB TR57 . A FACSMelody cell sorter and a Attune NXT flow cytometer could be purchased by their help. Furthermore, we could upgrade the Image Stream shortly after it was delivered, since we found out, that one of the planned experiments would require up to 20 hours of measurement time. This is definitely a job for an autosampler.
