Core Facility Support
The Research Council provides partial funding to:
BD FACSAria II for Core Facility for Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (C-FACS)
C-FACS provides flow cytometry-based applications and a unique service on the campus for the sorting of rare cell populations. The Core Facility is located at Interdisciplinary Center for Neurosciences, INF 364.
Crystal Gryphon LCP robot for Protein Crystallization Platform
The Cluster of Excellence CellNetworks and the group of Prof. Dr. Irmgard Sinning have established a state-of-the-art high-throughput crystallization platform for biological macromolecules at the BZH, INF 328.
ETD für LTQ Orbitrap Velos for Mass Spectronomy Core Facility
The ZMBH Core Facility for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics provides timely state-of-the-art services for identification and characterization of proteins to support the research of the ZMBH investigators. Capacity permitting, samples from outside the ZMBH can be analyzed at a highly competitive prize. The Core Facility is located at ZMBH, INF 282.
FACSAria 407 nm violet Laser for Flow Cytometry & Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting Core Facility (FACS)
Flow Cytometry and Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting, FACS is a fast and reliable method for characterizing and isolating certain cell populations based on fluorescent labeling, and can be applied to a great variety of organisms and cell types. The Core Facility is located at the ZMBH, INF 282.
Leica EM AFS2 Freeze Substitution System for EMBL Electron Microscopy Core Facility
The facility provides training in sample preparation and use of advanced electron microscopes, and develops approaches for cell and developmental biology. The Core Facility is located at EMBL, Meyerhofstr. 1.
UPLC-PDA system for Metabolomics Core Technology Platform
