BD FACSMelody training

The BD FACSMelody training is aimed to provide the participant with the background knowledge of flow cytometry and cell sorting, but also hands-on experience to eventually operate the system independently. This is also the only cell sorter in CAF which is not housed in a Biosafety level III laboratory, so everyone interested in training on cell sorting is welcome to register.

Courses are arranged as soon as there is enough interest. Please register here if you are interested and you will be contacted to arrange suitable dates.

Confocal Microscopy Course

This course introduces the participant to confocal microscopy, the principals of the technology and many advanced applications. Participants will get the chance for hands-on acquisition of images to familiarise themselves with the instrument, as well as data analysis.

Flow Cytometry Data analysis training

With this one-day course we aim to teach users basic data analysis of their flow cytometric data in FlowJo, a popular third party software package for analysis. We will cover data input, compensation, gating, creating tables and layouts for visual and data output. This course is aimed at allowing users to become more independent with their data analysis.

Courses are arranged as soon as there is enough interest. Please register here if you are interested and you will be contacted to arrange suitable dates.

Multicolour flow cytometry training

This course introduces the participant to flow cytometry, the principals of the technology and many advanced applications. A section on multi-colour panel design will be included, with emphasis on compensation and preparing the correct controls. Participants will get the chance for hands-on acquisition of data to familiarise themselves with the instrument, as well as data analysis.
