FACSOrient Training Courses

Course Description: 

 

These are 2-day interactive orientation online courses for those with no/minimal experience in flow cytometry and shall be useful to those working on BD FACSLyric™, BD LSR Fortessa™, BD FACSVerse™, BD Accuri™ C6, BD FACSVia™ , BD FACSCelesta™ and BD FACSCanto™ II flow cytometer platforms. The course is designed to provide a sound understanding of the fundamentals of flow cytometry and routine operational and quality control procedures of a flow cytometer system. Using simple immunophenotyping experiments participants will learn the steps and nuances of lyse-wash and lyse-no wash protocols, instrument setup, compensation, and data analysis. In addition to this, principles of DNA analysis, doublet discrimination and concepts of various research applications of flow cytometry will also be covered. For the participants from a clinical background, the course will be slanted appropriately to cover common clinical flow cytometric applications such as lymphocyte subset enumeration and HLA-B27 assay on BD FACS Canto™ II, BD FACSVia™ and BD FACSLyric™.
