Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
LabRoots is hosting Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, as part of the Beckman Coulter Webinar Series, to sponsor a new, free educational webinar, “Advanced sensitivity and resolution in flow cytometry through innovation,” which will include animated videos to help explain this new approach to cytometry. Speaker J. Paul Robinson, PhD, will explain how new technology has been incorporated into the CytoFLEX flow cytometer to give an edge to research.
Flow Cytometry technology has advanced significantly in recent years. For example, the CytoFLEX system includes a communications technology called Wavelength Division Multiplier (WDM) that changes the paradigm of light collection techniques in flow cytometry. This technology is also transformational in that it integrates APDs (Avalanche photo diode) instead of photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) for fluorescence detection. This revolutionary concept reduces the physical size and complexity of the instrument without compromising sensitivity and quality.
J. Paul Robinson is the SVM Professor of Cytomics in the College of Veterinary Medicine and a professor of biomedical engineering in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. His research area has been focused on reactive oxygen species primarily in neutrophils and cell lines such as HL-60 cells. His lab is currently focused on mitochondrial function. He was elected to the College of Fellows, American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering (AIMBE) in 2004, received the Pfizer Award for Innovative Research in 2004 and the Gamma Sigma Delta Award of Merit Research in 2002. He has participated in numerous NIH, NSF and private foundation review boards.
The complementary webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on December 4, 2015, at 8:00 am Pacific Time/11:00 am Eastern Time.
