The major focus of the course will be multicolor panels in immunology.
What will I learn from this course? We will review the basic concepts and principles of fluorochromes and fluorescent dyes. We will provide tips and tricks to optimise instruments and samples and explain the different controls needed to ensure that your flow cytometry experiments will yield accurate results. We will review why and how to compensate, along with the provision of tools to improve the compensation matrices. Learning the fundamentals of multicolor panel design and we will familiarise participants with OMIP panels. We will show you how to interpret published material, and the best practices for presenting data.
