FloCyte presents: Compensation and Multiparamter Strategies

Educational objectives: Our first course in Multiparameter Flow Cytometry back in 2004, taught by Dr. Carleton Stewart, Director of the Flow Cytometry Lab of Roswell Park Cancer Center in Buffalo, New York, was a great success. We have continued to build this curriculum begun with Dr. Stewart’s presentations on the basics of antibody binding kinetics, titering antibodies, extra and intracellular staining, using tandem dyes, blocking, viability and have augmented it with a complete compensation presentation, built on the work of Mario Roederer, Wayne Moore and Dave Parks,and Dr. Bartek Rajwa work on spectral unmixing. The response to this course has been excellent!

6 CEUs offered to all students of this course. Course Outline
