Welcome to the Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting Core Facility

The FACS Core Facility is located in the Skou Building and serves all research groups at Aarhus University.

The FACS Core Facility has two state of the art cell sorters FACSAria III.  As much as four different cell populations can be sorted simultaneously, and cells can either be sorted onto slides, into tubes (1-15 ml) or plates (6-384 wells).In addition, we have a LSRFortessa, a NovoCyte and a Quanteon analyser which can perform multi-parameter flow cytometric analysis.

Furthermore, the Facility has a combined microscope and flow cytometer, an ImageStreamX Mark II, with 5 lasers and 3 image magnification possibilities. 

The staff is highly experienced in flow cytometry and is ready to give advice setting up protocols and analysing data.

The FACS Core Facility was founded in September 2010 by the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology and the Department of Human Genetics with support from the Faculty of Health to provide the most optimal cell and particle sorting and advanced flow cytometry for scientists.

The Facility is funded by the Department of Biomedicine, the Department of Clinical Medicine, and the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University.


Due to the corona situation the FACS Core Facility will be closed until April the 13th 2020
