    Flow Cytometry Bootcamp at University of Wisconsin

    May 5 @ 9:00 am - May 6 @ 5:00 pm

    Educational Objectives

    This two day course will cover the fundamentals of flow cytometry to provide critical concepts for the novice and intermediate user. This course focuses on the core concepts of flow cytometry – “the basics” that every scientist using flow cytometry should know. At the end of this course, students will have a better understanding of the complexities of flow cytometry experimental design, optimization, and analysis.

    Target Audience

    Users with basic flow cytometry experience and a desire to move to higher end assays (from 4 color experiments to 8++ color)
