Flow Cytometer Analyzer Training

Project based introduction

Independent work on the facility analyzers is only possible after a technical introduction. The introduction is done in two steps:

I. Self study of the theory. Our Cytometry Education Platform provides you with material for self-study on flow cytometry theory and the instrument handling.
II. Supervised session at the instrument. After you have studied the theory, you can request a supervised first recording session using your sample. During that session we can also discuss any project related questions. Depending on on-site staff availability, we will support your session on-site or remotely via a conference webcam.

The supervised session costs 90 CHF and can be canceled up to 24h prior the arranged date (later cancellations or no-shows will be fully charged).

How to request an introduction?

Please decide which analyzer you want to use and fill out our online form to request the introduction.

Note on the BD HTS system

If you want to use the High Throughput Sampler (HTS) on the Fortessa or Canto you will need an additional (~1h) introduction, which you can request via the online form as well. We recommend that you get comfortable with handling the basic instrument and collect experience with the panel to be recorded before using the HTS.
