Virtual Flow Cytometry Data Analysis Course Autumn 2021

13 - 16 September 2021, Online

This course, which will run over 4 half-days, will cover the basics of analysis for a number of different applications including antibody phenotyping, DNA and cell cycle kinetics, cell proliferation and death, and functional studies. There will also be the opportunity to explore high-dimensional analysis using dimensionality reduction and clustering techniques.

Pre-recorded lectures will be provided in advance of the meeting with live small group practical sessions in the afternoons.  It is run in the afternoon UK time to make it more accessible to those in other time zones (14:00 GMT/15:00 CET/09:00 EST).

Delegates will be able to use data files (which will be provided) and follow along with directed analysis by the course demonstrators. Analysis will be performed in either FlowJo or FCS Express and Applications specialists will also form part of the demonstrator team.

This course is open to all and is suitable for those who are relatively new to flow cytometry and who wish to expand their experience with applications and specific analysis.

Core Facilities are key-players in modern institutions. Their still emergent role inevitably entails new paradigms regarding their scope and structure. The CTLS2021 conference aims to address several of these points, contributing to shape the future of the technical and scientific landscape of life sciences in Europe.

We are back!  Our 4-Day Intensive Hands-On Flow Cytometry Course.

  • "Thanks for a superb Flow Course - teaching/hands-on practicals.Really relevant - can't wait to put into practice!"
  • "An excellent course with fantastic tutors." "Thanks for all the team who were really special and what can I say -never better."
  • "I am very impressed with the course staff, interactions, coursematerial and the way it was planned."
  • "Excellent course, excellent teaching - thank you."
  • "A very well run, enjoyable and informative course.  I woulddefinitely recommend to future users.  I wish I had taken this coursea few years ago."

Introduction  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 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 is taught by academic and research staff of the University of York Technology Facility, guest specialists from over the UK as well as Beckman Coulter's own applications specialist. Guest specialists will give an initial talk on their specialised techniques and will then participate in the running of the practical sessions.

The University of York is pleased to present the course in collaboration with Beckman Coulter.

Based on delegates from similar courses in 2018 and 2019, it is anticipated that participants will come from both academia and industry throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.

Course Benefits  This intensive, four-day training course will be of value to anyone wanting to gain hands-on experience of modern flow cytometric techniques. 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.
