SLAS2018 Short Courses

Advanced Flow Cytometry

The advanced course will expand into advanced areas many of which are leading-edge applications or expansions of current technology. These will include high throughput screening, advanced multiparameter analysis, spectral technologies, cell sorting and clinical and environmental (microbial) applications for example. This course will provide the audience with a strong background level of understanding of the technology, current limitations, and the future opportunities.

Who Should Attend:

  • Those interested in expanding their knowledge in general analytical tools.
  • Sales and Marketing people in competing fields.
  • Scientists who are interested in developing new knowledge.

Those interested in the following tracks:
