Advances in both flow cytometry reagents and instrumentation allow researchers to run increasingly complex multicolor experiments. One of the biggest challenges in multiparameter flow cytometry is selecting the right combination of fluorophores and antibody conjugates so that the need for compensation and spillover adjustments is kept to a minimum while the quality and accuracy of the data are not compromised. In this section you will find educational resources and tools to help you design and execute multicolor flow cytometry experiments, including panel design tool, articles, application notes, on demand webinars, and more.
