Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry Facility

The facility provides a centralized flow cytometry and cell sorting service to researchers and collaborators at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research. It covers a wide range of applications that include mouse satellite cells, lung endothelial cells, cardiomyocytes, and diverse samples for gene expression, cell cycle and multi-colour phenotyping.


The BioSorter is a large particle sorter equipped with all options for isolating a range of different sized entities e.g. mouse pancreatic islets, adipocytes, myofibers and zebrafish.
