- Flow Cytometry. 4 Day Intensive Hads-on Course

Basics through to more advanced techniques
23-26 January 2007
Instructors will include
- Peter O'Toole (University of York)
- Ian Brotherick (DakoCytomation)
- Derek Davies (CRUK)
- Adrian Robins (University of Nottingham)

An intensive, hands-on, four-day training course in the variedtechniques using flow cytometry. The course will initially cover basic flow cytometry but then rapidly move on to the more advanced applications. These will include cell cycle, apoptosis, cell proliferation, GFP and other fluorescent proteins, FRET and receptor quantification. The course has been designed to allow the participant to gain experience of what a flow cytometer is capable and to raiseawareness of the problems that can be encountered.An essential feature of our course is the unique combination ofpractical, laboratory-based work with both taught and tutorial-style classroom sessions.

Evening meals will be provided on both Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Places are limited to 12 participants to permit full hands-on practice, so please book early to avoid disappointment.For further information, please visit the course website at: or contact Margaret Newton 01904328821,
