Bio 629 Advanced Course in Flow Cytometry

September 2nd - 5th 2019

1 ECTS point

Registration ends 16th of August or as soon as the course is fully booked. Course confirmation can be expected from 23rd of August onwards latest 30th ofAugust.

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. Mass Cytometry
  4. Spectral Flow Cytometry

These one day modules cover theoretical background as well as data acquisition with the CyTOF, Image Stream X Mark II and Sony Spectral Analyzer. Subsequent introduction to data analysis with hands on R and IDEAS sessions along with an extensive Demo of Cytobank shall support the participants to plan their future experiments more easily using the above mentioned techniques.

Registration and costs

Course fees are 400 CHF for technicians, postdocs and ETH PhD students. The course fee is 1000 CHF for external participants.
