About the event.

Aim:

Improve theoretical knowledge in flow cytometry to assist with planning and running your own experiment

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Gain an understanding of how fluorochromes behave and considerations when planning a multicolour panel experiment
  2. Understand the importance of controls and how compensation works
  3. Understand how a cytometer works
  4. Gain confidence to diagnose problems and how to remedy them
  5. Develop knowledge of what CS&T and accudrop beads do
  6. Have broadened understanding of important considerations for single cell sorting
  7. Have the opportunity to discuss your experimental planning with experienced cytometrists

Depending on applicants’ interests, there may be time to cover additional topics of common interest, for example cell sorting experiments, so please highlight these in your application.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required. Preference will be given to those in the early planning stages of their projects.

Target Audience:

Ideal for researchers starting out in flow cytometry and in the planning stages of an experiment. An opportunity to expand theoretical knowledge for those more experienced researchers.
