April Update! Safety Measures - COVID19

safety measures at the Core Facility Flow Cytometry


Dear users of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility,

The current situation forces the CFFlowCyt to follow the recommendations and rules issued by the State of Bavaria, the LMU, BMC.

This means:

  • Trainings are suspended until further notice. 
  • Service sorts are only possible if the samples are handed over (drop-off) for processing and later collected – no discussion of gating etc. at the instrument.
  • autonomous S2-sorts are suspended until further notice.
  • Autonomous users
  1. should limit their analyses/sorts to the absolutely essential.
  2. have to refrein from parallel use of more than two instruments per room at any given time (managed through calendars)
  3. must maintain 1.5m spacing at any time
  4. have to wear protective facial masks covering mouth and nose - "Community masks", i.e. those prescribed by the State of Bavaria to be worn in stores and public transportation from 27 April on, are sufficient.
  5. have to wear glovesat all times – also when touching the PC, keyboard, mouse. (If necessary, use different sets of gloves for samples and computer equipment! Dispose of gloves in the blue bins!)
  6. have to disinfect mouse and keyboard after usage: wipe with 80% EtOH
  7. need to wash hands when entering and when leaving the facility.
