Flow cytometry - continuation course
Aim and format
The course aims to provide a broad understanding of different aspects of flow cytometry, including experimental design, sample material handling, analysis of flow cytometry data, as well as file and image handling prior to research publication. The course provides practical knowledge of advanced flow cytometry that can be directly transferred to research questions.
On completion of the course, the participants shall be able to:
set up FACS analysis instruments and conduct quality controls
analyse flow cytometry data
formulate a topical research question and select relevant method(s) within the area of flow cytometry.
The course includes the following elements:
the theory behind flow cytometry
applications of flow cytometry within biomedical research
sources of error, quality assurance, validation of flow cytometry methods
FACS experiments: planning, implementation and analysis of flow cytometry data.
The course comprises theoretical lectures associated with advanced flow cytometry, practical demonstrations, theoretical and practical group work, as well as individual discussion forums and practical exercises regarding specific research questions in which advanced flow cytometry is applied. The results of these exercises are presented to, and discussed by, the course coordinator and course participants.
