The Immunoanalytics (IMA) - Core Facility welcomes users from research institutes of the Helmholtz Zentrum München, universities, other academic institutions as well as companies.

The Core Facility provides analysis and technologies on 
fluorescence-based analytical methods for characterization, for activation analysis and for immuno-monitoring of immunocytes. Services for cell enrichment (FACS, MACS), for generation of immunocyte sub-populations and cell-engineering complete our service offer.

The Immunoanalytics - Core Facility is directly connected to the research unit “Tissue Control of Immunocytes” (TCI). By this tight link to research we can offer know-how and a broad variety of state-of-the-art research techniques and assays.
