Service offered regarding cell sorting

Operator based sorts

The size range of the sorted samples goes from 0.3 μm - 70 μm in diameter and 1 mm in length, which enables us to sort organelles, bacteria, eukaryotic cells and larger multicellular structures.

Samples labeled with all conventional flourochromes and flourescent proteins can be processed.

Operator-based sorts are charged 100 CHF per hour and are booked based on individual needs. The full booking procedure is described here.

We take your samples and deliver the sorted material, with you being free to do other work in the meantime.


Training and Education in Flow Cytometry

The Cytometry Facility offers training in handling the analyzers to all the staff of the University of Zurich.

Users with extensive sorting needs and prior experience in flow cytometry can be trained in cell sorting on an individual basis. More information can be found here.

Additionally, the theoretical and practical aspects of flow cytometry are covered in more detail through our seminars.


Support to research groups purchasing or hosting their own flow cytometer

The Cytometry Facility additionally offers support to all research groups in purchasing flow cytometry instrumentation.

Based on your research needs, we discuss appropriate instrument solutions with you and provide direct contact with the manufacturers.

We help research groups with an own cytometer by supporting and training the person in duty with special emphasis. If you are responsible for a cytometer, we warmly welcome you to contact us any time!
