A first edition of the EMBL Course Hands-on Flow Cytometry took place the second week of February 2017 at the training labs of the ATC building. The course was organized by the EMBL-Flow Cytometry Core Facility in collaboration with highly qualified speakers and instructors from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Newcastle Univesity and the Flow Cytometry of EMBL-Monterotondo.
For this course, we received 80 applications from all over the world, from which 16 participants were selected based on their needs and motivation to learn “a bit more” about Flow Cytometry.
The course covered fundamental theory about this technique with a big emphasis on practical work. Attendees had the opportunity to perform labeling and cell cycle experiments at the bench and get familiar with experimental set-up and sample acquisition directly on the cytometers.
We got a very positive feedback from the participants and a second edition of the course will take place on June 4-8, 2018. More information in the following months!.
