General information

This beginner course provides a systematic introduction to flow cytometry via a series of lectures. The course includes theory session on instrument layout, panel design, fluorescence and detection of fluorescence, spectral features, controls in flow cytometry, data structure & visualization and principles of manual data analysis. The theory will be complemented by practical workshops on compensation and panel design.

During the instrument demonstration we will record various experiments on our instrument. In the final session we will guide you through a complete cytometry experiment. Starting from staining PBMCs, recording controls & samples and finally analyzing the data of our 6 color demo T-reg panel.
