MultiFLEX applications in flow cytometry
By Assoc.Prof.Dr. Alfonso Blanco,
Director Of Flow Cytrometry Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research
When purchasing a flow cytometer, the lab manager needs to identify instruments with high performance and sensitivity that are easy to use and flexible enough to cover the needs of their diverse users.
During this webinar, applications in different scientific fields (human, marine and veterinary biology, agriculture, food science and nanobiology) will demonstrate why sensitivity and flexibility are so important when selecting an instrument.
Participants will learn how to perform a successful flow cytometry assay by following some basic rules and optimizing the instrument. We will see how optimization is achieved simply on the CytoFLEX platform (analyzers and sorters).
Although one of the most common applications of cytometry is immunology, we will navigate through different applications from microbiology to agriculture, plants to nanoparticles, cultured cells to extracellular vesicles. In short, the overall flexibility of the flow cytometer will be highlighted to demonstrate how flow cytometry is adaptable to address broad research questions.
Finally, we will discuss advancements in flow cytometry technology and how companies are developing products in response to customer feedback. This will be an opportunity for you to provide feedback to us on your biggest challenges and the things you need to make flow cytometry easier.
