Flow Cytometry: Principles, Methods and Applications
November 30 – December 3
This four day program is ideal for those who are looking for an in-depth, hands-on introduction to Flow Cytometry. Team taught by active researchers (50+ yrs of combined FACs experience), our instructors will focus on a broad spectrum of flow cytometric topics, discuss examples from various research applications, provide technical protocols for flow cytometric sample preparation, as well as data analysis, troubleshooting and experimental design. Attendees will experience four different flow platforms (Becton Dickinson, Miltenyi, Sony and Bio-Rad) as well as exposure to four software analysis programs.
