Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
Beckman Coulter is sponsoring a new educational webinar, “Centrifugal Elutriation- Utility in the Flow Cytometry Laboratory,” with Peter Lopez, which will review centrifugal elutriation, and then illustrate various established applications of the technology. Previously reported applications, as well as new applications under development in the lab, are a logical adjunct to the cell sorting techniques offered in a flow cytometry laboratory. The webinar is free to attend and will be broadcast live April 28, 2015 at 8:00am PT.
Centrifugal elutriation is a mature technology that has been used for purification of cell subsets such as monocytes based upon cell density and size, without the need for labeling. The technique has been widely used for synchronization of cells or to purify cells in distinct cell cycle phases. The specialized elutriation rotor allows loading material into the spinning elutriator chamber, and by varying the fluid flow rate introduced into the chamber to counter the centrifugal force, fractions of particles with predictable size can be removed.
The speaker will be Peter Lopez, who is currently a Research Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology, NYU School of Medicine, and the Director of the NYULMC Flow Cytometry Facility. Peter has published over 30 scientific articles or book chapters and serves on the Executive Council of the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry, and the Executive Board of the Association for Biological Resource Facilities.
Peter's career has been devoted to utilizing flow cytometry to facilitate research in biological science, and his interest in designing new applications has led to his lab's current research into utilizing centrifugal elutriation in the flow cytometry core.
The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on Thursday, April 28, 2015 at 8:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT, 4:00pm GMT.
