The PANDA experiment is one of the pillars of the new Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research, currently under construction in Darmstadt, Germany. PANDA will be a fixed-target experiment which will study non-perturbative strong interaction phenomena in antiproton-proton collisions in the beam momentum range of 1.5 - 15 GeV/c. Strangeness production will be addressed through pbar p -> Hyperon-Antihyperon processes. The results of a feasibility study to measure the pbar p ->Sigmabar Lambda reaction, at antiproton beam momenta of 1.771 GeV/c and 6 GeV/c are presented and discussed in this paper.

Due to a high antiproton beam resolution the PANDA experiment at FAIR will offer a unique possibility to perform precise resonance energy scans. Thereby a precise line shape and width measurement of very narrow resonances like the charmonium-like X(3872), which is discussed to be exotic, becomes feasible. Monte Carlo studies have been performed, to address the achievable sensitivities of such measurements, assuming different signal cross-sections, line shapes and luminosity combinations.
