Bio 629 Advanced Course in Flow Cytometry

January 10th - 13th 2022

1 ECTS point

The course is bookable until the 3rd of January 2022 or until the course is full (we allow overbooking therefore we do not have a waiting list).

Course confirmation is sent out latest friday 7th of january. However, usually successfull booking guarantees a course seat.


Course overview

Module based in-depth flow cytometry course on selected applications and techniques. Theoretical lectures will be combined with hands-on sessions on the instrument. Our goal is that participants will acquire conceptional & technical skills allowing them to actively implement these techniques in their experimental routine.


The course is aimed at PhD students / Postdocs / Master students from UZH / USZ / ETH with previous experience in flow cytometry, who are seeking to improve their skills in advanced flow cytometry applications. The course allows a maximum of 20 participants.


  1. Imaging Flow Cytometry: Bridging the gap between microscopy and flow cytometry
  2. High Dimensional Flow Cytometry: Using R in flow cytometry
  3. Spectral Flow Cytometry
  4. Mass Cytometry: using the CyTOF 2

These one day modules cover theoretical background as well as data acquisition with the CyTOF, Image Stream X Mark II and Sony or Cytek Spectral Analyzer instrument. The practical sessions will be followed by data analysis with hands on R and IDEAS software and a demonstration of Cytobank. In case we need to cancel on of the modules at short notice there will be an alternative module on high-speed cell sorting (Aria III droplet sorter) instead.
