Scientific Services


We provide competent scientific and technical assistance for fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) and flow cytometric analysis. We assist with experiment and panel design, data analysis, provide advice on sample preparation and troubleshooting. Operation of the cell sorters (including measurements without sorting) are operator-based. Besides providing flow cytometric support, we conduct own research focusing on improving measurement assurance.

Mass Spectrometry Facility

The mass spectrometry group is headed by David Meierhofer. We provide mass spectrometry analysis for our entire institute in form of cooperation’s and service. External cooperations can be possible. Our own research focus is in the field of renal carnimomas.

Microscopy &Cryo Electron Microscopy

The microscopy and cryo-electron microscopy service group now combines the former microscopy group headed by Dr. Rudi Lurz from 1978 until his retirement in 2012 and the cryo-electron microscopy group which was installed in 2004 within the framework of Berlin-Brandenburg-wide research consortia “UltraStructure Network” (USN) and “Anwenderzentrum” (AWZ). Our group provides a broad range of imaging techniques for all departments and OWL research groups of the institute.

Sequencing Core Facility
New sequencing technologies are currently revolutionizing the field of genomic research. They enable researchers to investigate (epi)genomes and transcriptomes at an unexampled depth and level of detail. Founded in 2007, the Sequencing Facility at the MPIMG is a central unit which provides its service to all research groups of the institute. Since 2010, the expertise is also provided to scientists outside the MPIMG and the group acquired the status of a Sequencing Core Facility for the institutes of the biological-medical section (BMS) of the Max Planck Society. more
