Bio 629 Advanced Course in Flow Cytometry

Aug 29th - Sep 1st 2022 fully booked

1 ECTS point

The advanced course in septemer is fully booked. The web form is therefore not available.

The next Advanced Course in Cytometry takes place in January and can be booked here from 15th September onwards.


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. Small particle analysis: Recording of extracellular vesicles with a Nanoanalyzer
  4. Single-cell multi-omics: a deeper characterization of known and novel cell subsets using the BD Rhapsody

These one day modules cover theoretical background as well as data acquisition with the Image Stream X Mark II, BD Rhapsody and NanoFCM instruments. The practical instrument sessions will be accompanied by data analysis sessions with corresponding software like R and IDEAS and NF Professional.

Note: If any of the module cannot be run because of tutor sickness or other incidents we will run the High Speed Cell Sorting module from previous courses as an alternative.
