Cell Sorting

Fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) is a powerful tool to analyze cell populations and sort them with respect to the expression of characteristic markers. These characteristic surface proteins are labelled with antibodies that are coupled to a fluorescent dye. Based on size, granularity and fluorescent labeling, different cells can be distinguished. Our lab owns a sorter that enables us to robustly measure and separate primary cardiac cells as well as transfected cells from cell culture.
