This comprehensive flow cytometry course will teach you how flow cytometers work and how to design your assays to achieve reliable, reproducible results. After covering the basics, we’ll discuss advanced topics including multicolor panel design, troubleshooting, data analysis and artifact reduction. The concepts introduced in these lectures will be complemented by virtual laboratory sessions that will expand your knowledge of key concepts and best practices in analytic cytometry, cell sorting, experiment design and analysis. This year, the lecture and laboratory modules will be conducted through teleconferencing software to bring you our time-tested training course to you safely and conveniently. The course has been redesigned to lessen “PowerPoint fatigue” and to incorporate more data analysis and other interactive sessions give students the best experience and as much instructive time at the cytometers as possible using live streaming videos. Special guest speakers will introduce new trends in flow cytometry and our vendor partners will provide brief “bite-sized” in-depth discussions of topics curated by your instructors to familiarize you with the latest flow cytometry technologies. Please make plans to join us this summer, August 24-28, for another fun week of flow education. Full registration details can be found here:
