Flow Cytometry webinars

Our flow cytometry webinars are designed to give a basic framework for learning experimental setup, compensation, and data analysis. These webinars also provide tips and tricks from our experienced technical support scientists and offer guidance for selecting the best products to help you achieve optimal results.

Recorded flow cytometry webinars

Find out how to get better cell recovery and definition of cell cycle compartments. This webinar will focus on multiparametric cell cycle analysis of DNA and specific epitopes using a “washless” staining assay to minimize sample handling.

Join Grace Chojnowski, Flow Cytometry and Imaging Facility Manager at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute as she discusses how instrument standardization can help simplify your flow cytometry.

In this webinar, Natasha Roark, scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, discusses CRISPR gene editing technology and its role in flow cytometry editing efficiencies.

In this webinar, Chris Langsdorf, scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, discusses how flow cytometry can effectively be employed in research efforts aimed at advancing the discovery and development of various immunotherapy strategies.

In this webinar, Dr. Jordi Petriz (The Jose Carreras Leukemia Research Institute in Barcelona) discusses how flow cytometry can be a key player in investigating cancer stem cells. The ability of normal and tumor stem cells to express transporter molecules that function to exclude anticancer drugs and certain dye molecules can potentially be exploited to identify and isolate cancer stem cells by flow cytometry.

Basics of Multicolor Flow Cytometry Panel Design

With the proliferation of new fluorescent dyes, as well as instruments that can detect 18 or more parameters multicolor flow cytometry has become more popular and more accessible than ever. This webinar will discuss the caveats of good panel design, including:

  • Rules for designing panels
  • Examples and practical application of these rules
  • Controls and standardization
  • Relevance of panel design to new mass cytometry platforms

Flow Cytometry in Microbiological Research

In recent years the application of flow cytometry in microbiological research has expanded from detection and quantification of organisms to more complex studies including analysis of host-microbe interactions and detailed spatial and temporal analysis of microbial metabolism in different environments. During this webinar we will discuss how the multi-parametric nature of flow cytometry can be applied to microbiology and the advantages of using this application over traditional microbiological methods.

An Introduction to Flow Cytometric Analysis Using Molecular Probes Reagents,
Part II: Viability, Vitality, & Apoptosis Analysis

In this free webinar, we will discuss flow cytometric analysis of apoptosis and identification of dead cells. Changes introduced by apoptosis can be tested with numerous assays measuring Membrane structure, Mitochondrial function, Metabolism, Caspase activity, Membrane integrity, and DNA fragmentation. We will also discuss dead cell identification using traditional impermeant nucleic acid dyes.
