Bio 629 Advanced Course in Flow Cytometry

January 13th - 16th 2020

1 ECTS point

Registration ends 3rd of January or as soon as the course is fully booked. Course confirmation can be expected latest 10th of January 2020, but not before 8th of January.

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 15 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. If one of the modules can not be presented, high speed cell sorting using the Aria line of instruments will be offered instead.

Registration and costs

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