Four institutions at the University of Wuerzburg are collaborating in a decentral core facility to perfom FACS Aria III Cell analysis and sorting for all interested researchers of the University.
IMIB - Institut für Molekulare Infektionsbiologie
LfMB - Lehrstuhl für Mikrobiologie
RVZ - Rudolf-Virchow-Zentrum
VIM - Institut für Virologie und Immunbiologie
Versbacher Straße 7
IZKF core unit
The flow cytometry instruments provide comprehensive and technically sophisticated cell analysis and sorting services.
All locations are equipped with state of the art sorters and have the capacity to run many advanced flow cytometry applications, i. e.:
DNA cell cycle analysis
procaryotic and eukaryotic cell sorting
An important difference between the machines is which lasers are present and which colors are detectable. Two of the machines are located in S2 (L2) laboratories and can be used preferentially for pathogenic material (IMIB, LMB). Two sorters are preferentially used for immunological research and diagnostics VIM, RVZ). More details regarding the difference between the machines are listed in Equipment.
