A Flow Cytometry approach to the detection of rare cells

Thermo Fisher Scientific and the German Rheumatism Research Centre Berlin (DRFZ) invites you to join the Rare Events Workshop 2015, where you and fellow researchers can learn and share about how to use flow cytometry to detect rare cells across a broad range of applications. The workshop is open to scientists who are willing to better benefit from the large potential of flow cytometry. Previous theoretical knowledge and practical experience of flow cytometry is recommended but not required. Reserve your place today, attendance is free but spaces are limited.
