Lighthouse Core Facility (Lighthouse) Save as PDFShow print view

The Lighthouse Core Facility is located in the Zentrum für Translationale Zellforschung (ZTZ) at the Universitätsklinikum Freiburg and was founded to give investigators access to a variety of fluorescence-based technologies. Equipment belonging to the facility include 3 high speed cell sorters, numerous FACS analysers, 2 confocal microscopes, 1 automated microscope/image cytometer, quantitative PCR machines and a droplet digital PCR system. The facility also has several workstations dedicated to offline analysis of experiments carried out on the above-mentioned systems.

  • Scientific Services

Cell sorting is available as a facility-operated service, requiring the help and availability of one of our sort operators. The facility offers both theoretical and practical instruction in the areas of flow cytometry and fluorescence imaging, in particular to help students and investigators who are new to the field. The FACS analysers can be operated by the users themselves, after proper instruction from facility staff. The same is true for the use of the facility microscopes and QPCR/digital PCR systems. The facility staff performs QC protocols regularly on all of the machines and also ensures that they are used correctly and are well-maintained. The facility staff assists investigators with experimental planning and setup, as well as with strategies and advice on data analysis in the areas mentioned above.
