Flow Cytometry - Quantitative analysis of cells and cellular systems
Advances in technology and the development of new analytical methods provide the driving force for discovery in various fields of biology and medicine. Over the past three decades, we have witnessed a spectacular development of instrumentation and expansion of methods using flow cytometry.

Flow cytometry has evolved from a "science in itself" to an indispensable tool for research and diagnostic characterization of cells in health and disease. Although various immunophenotyping techniques are already routine laboratory procedures, new methods for functional cell characterization, rare cell analysis and diagnosis of complex materials have been widely recognized. Multiparametric approaches, nanoscale particle size measurements, and high sensitivity in fluorescence detection further enhance the analysis.

Originated in the 1940s, Flow Cytometry has played a crucial role in pushing the boundaries of cell biology, immunology, hematology, marine biology, and technology. In Brazil, it began in 1989 with the acquisition of the first flow cytometer by the Oswaldo Cruz Institute - FIOCRUZ, RJ, being used by the entire Brazilian scientific community, laying the first foundation stone for the creation of Flow Cytometry Core Facilities.

This Meeting aims to celebrate these 30 years of Flow Cytometry in Brazil with the participation of some exponents of Brazilian flow cytometry and international experts (see Programming). A unique opportunity for updating and future collaborations.
