The Flow cytometry core facility at EMBL (Heidelberg)

is dedicated to support research projects requiring FACS analysis and cell sorting both for the EMBL and any institution of our member states. Our equipment and services can be easily booked from outside of EMBL and we welcome every user making their way to us, by writing an email to:

We are a team of two highly trained PhDs with expertise spanning from developmental biology to sophisticated immunology. We provide guidance through all the steps of your flow experiment. We design, run, and analyse the results of your flow cytometry experiment together with you.
