Flow Cytometry Boot Camp

The Flow Cytometry Lab is hosting a Flow Cytrometry Boot Camp - Two Day Course with Excyte Expert Cytometry on May 5-6, 2014. This two-day course will cover the fundamentals of flow cytometry to provide critical concepts for the novice and intermediate user. This course focuses on the core concepts of flow cytometry – “the basics” that every scientist using flow cytometry should know. At the end of this course, students will have a better understanding of the complexities of flow cytometry experimental design, optimization and analysis. Users with basic flow cytometry experience and a desire to move to higher end assays (from 4 color experiments to 8++ color) are encouraged to attend. Learn more and register for the course.
