  • Course description

    This school is aimed at students, scientists and related personnel with previous experience in flow cytometry and keen interest in learning more about the current state-of-the art instrumentation and applications. The 5-day course is somewhat unique in offering ample opportunities for hands-on work in the form of parallel workshop modules covering the following areas:

    • Mass cytometry (CyTOF)
    • Computational data analysis
    • Spectral flow cytometry
    • Polychromatic flow cytometry
    • Image cytometry
    • Cell sorting
    • Clinically relevant flow cytometry

    Accompanied with lectures and tutorials, the course syllabus is flexible and allows for personalized learning experience at the high level. Upon completion, the participants take home a working knowledge of the covered topics together with the protocols and practical advice, ready to embrace the work on their own.

  • What participants said about the previous school...

    "The lectures were all very good and I benefited from all lectures. Practical courses on 3rd and 4th day were just great! I appreciated the opportunity to interact with the lecturers during the breaks"

    "Guests on course had wonderful lectures, they answered a lot of questions, themes were interesting, they lectures was helpful in everyday practical work."

    "It was great to have opportunity to learn new technologies like Cytof and new algorithms like SPADE and viSNE. Cytof practical teachers were very enthusiastic and motivate us to use the technology. Also, it was cool to be able to approach specialists and ask follow up questions"

    "High quality lectures of very relevant topics, and diverse applications for different questions in research. Practical link in the workshops to theoretical topics discussed in the lectures was very helpful and interesting. Also, the option to choose specific workshops allowed everyone to see what was important to them."

    "Very helpful hands on practice, both in lecture and workshop. Thought provoking background information of instrument and important quality control of flow data, which we didn't pay enough attention on before."
