Flow Cytometry Course York University: June 19 - 22
Feb 27 2018 Read 409 Times
An intensive, hands-on, four-day training course in the varied techniques using flow cytometry. The course will initially cover basic flow cytometry but then rapidly move on to the more advanced applications. These will include cell cycle, apoptosis, cell proliferation, GFP and other fluorescent proteins, FRET and receptor quantification. The course has been designed to allow the participant to gain experience of what a flow cytometer is capable of and to raise awareness of the problems that can be encountered. To demonstrate each technique, a wide range of both samples (plants to cell culture) and labels (antibody to fluorescent proteins) will be used. Participants are welcome to bring their own samples.
The course, presented in collaboration with Beckman Coulter is taught by academic and research staff of the University of York Technology Facility, guest specialists from over the UK, who will also participate in the running of practical sessions, as well as Beckman Coulter's own applications specialist.
Based on delegates from similar courses in 2014 and 2015, it is anticipated that participants will come from both academia and industry throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
In addition to the hands-on component, the course will include tutorials on the theory and practice of all the techniques and methods covered, as well as many other relevant topics in the field.
An essential feature of our course is the unique combination of practical, laboratory-based work with both taught and tutorial-style classroom sessions. The Technology Facility labs are extremely well equipped for modern flow cytometry, including the two CyAn ADP analysers, with 3 lasers (405, 488 and 635nm) and 9 colour detectors. Participants will have the opportunity to analyse their own samples during the free format session or to cover previous work where appropriate.
