Our services include
isolation of neural of progenitors based on the expression of surface markers.
C-FACS offers a wide range of protocols for the purification of neural precursors. Protocols have been optimized for the isolation of cells from wild type mice but can be also modified for the isolation of progenitors from other species;
isolation of neural of progenitors based on the expression of reporter genes.
We offer a wide range of procedures for tagging neural precursors in vivo. These include plasmid and virus-based approaches as well as transgenic mice. Procedures for the customary tagging of the cells in culture or in vivo cannot be performed in the facility. However, we offer dedicated space for the housing of externally generated transgenic mice and the sterile preparation of the samples;
Establishment of long-term cell cultures from isolated neural stem cells.
Training and support
C-FACS offers practical courses to students of the University of Heidelberg and PhD students of the HBIGS graduate college.
