The flow cytometric core facility has approval for 5 (!) new sorters/analyzers

The DFG and the German state of NRW will fund 3 new flow cytometric analyzers and 2 new sorters: 1) BD Fortessa II Analyzer, 2) FACS Fusion II Sorter, 3) Melody Sorter, 4) Amnis Imagestream, 5) Attune Analyzer

These machines will enhance the high-end analysis and sorting capacity of the core facility enormously, for example by allowing also sorting of S2 and infected material. The imagestream introduces a completely new technique,  the combination between flow cytometry and microscopy. It allows studying cell signaling, organelles and their routing, inflammasome activation and many more exciting questions.
