Flow cytometry is a powerful technique for the analysis of multiple parameters of individual cells within heterogeneous populations. Flow cytometry is used in a broad range of applications including immunophenotyping, fluorescent protein detection, rare event analysis, cell health characterization, and more. In this presentation we will review the basics of fluorescence and how to use a fluorescence excitation/emission spectrum, compare conventional vs. full spectrum flow cytometry, and review numerous types of fluorophores listing advantages and challenges of each. This webinar is useful for new and practiced cytometry users interested in learning the general concepts of fluorescence, and details of the commonly used fluorophores behind flow cytometry. Learning Objectives
Basic introduction to the fluorescence process and key terms
Interpret fluorescence spectra to identify fluorophore characteristics
Compare the basics of conventional vs. spectral flow cytometry
List advantages of common fluorophores used in flow cytometry
The one day flowcytometryUK 2021 Meeting will take place in Cambridge highlighting the diverse areas in which cytometry is a vital resource. There will be scientific presentations from a number of speakers interspersed with commercial flash presentations. A commercial exhibition will allow delegates to see recent developments in the field. The meeting also offers a great opportunity to network with fellow cytometrists in a relaxed and informal environment.

Mr Derek Davies
Flow Cytometry Section Vice Chair
The Francis Crick Institute Derek is the Science Technology Platform (STP) Training lead at the Francis Crick Institute in London. For many years prior to this he ran the flow cytometry core facility at the Crick (and its founder Institutes). His role now involves delivering high-quality education and training in flow cytometry and other technologies to end-users both at the Crick and outside. He co-organises the section’s annual flow cytometry course at the University of York and is active in promotion of cytometry via focussed meetings and other courses. He is one of the principal organisers of flowcytometryUK meetings. Derek is particularly keen to promote cytometry education within the UK and beyond.
Dr Rachael Walker
Babraham Institute Rachael is the Head of Flow Cytometry Core Facility at Babraham Institute, Cambridge. The core provides a service to Babraham Institute and biotech companies that are housed on the Babraham Research Campus. She is also very involved with the flow cytometry community, on a local, national and International level. Rachael is one of the principle organisers of the flowcytometryUK biennial meeting and also the Advances in Cytometry meeting. Rachael has been awarded an ‘Emerging Leader ‘ scholarship from the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC).
