GROW WITH THE FLOW:

EXPAND YOUR APPLICATIONS IN BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH WITH FLOW CYTOMETRY  

SPONSOR: BECKMAN COULTER

Moderator: J. Pon Samuel, Dow AgroSciences

9:00 am – 5:00 pm  For Fee Workshop, Separate Registration Required

Flow cytometry is a powerful tool with numerous applications in biomedical research (i.e. immunology, hematology, oncology) in addition to other fields. It also has important applications in plant science where it has served scientists for almost four decades. Many advancements in biological research would not have been possible without the use of this important tool. Benchtop analyzers are a great milestone in flow cytometry. They are a key building block for research scientists seeking innovation in cellular science due to its accessibility and ease of operation. This workshop focuses on highlighting the state-of-the-art technology for studying plants and animals at the cellular and subcellular level.

Experts will be available to answer questions on the capabilities of the technology and the equipment in addition to any other relevant information at the exhibition booths during the conferences.

Advanced Registration is required to participate in this workshop.
