When using a flow cytometry core facility, researchers commonly evaluate how to process their cellular samples most efficiently, while also ensuring the highest quality and reproducibility of their data. In this webinar, sponsored by Miltenyi Biotec, case studies and examples will be presented on the how the Miltenyi Biotec line of instrumentation, including the gentleMACS™ Dissociator, autoMACS® Pro Separator and MACSQuant® Analyzer, has improved the performance and quality of research projects in a core facility setting.
Participants of the webinar will learn best practices for optimizing sample preparation and experimental design for cell analysis that will help researchers get the most out of their flow analysis. Some key topics of discussion will include increased yield and reproducibility during tissue dissociation, efficient rare cell sorting through pre-enrichment and decreased time spent cleaning and maintaining instruments.
Chris Spring, a flow cytometry core specialist at St. Michael’s Hospital Research Institute in Toronto, will be the speaker for this webinar.
Spring received his Master of Science in cellular and molecular biology from McMaster University in Ontario. He has spent nearly 15 years working in cell biology, primarily working on analyzing the role of platelets in immunological and cardiovascular diseases. For the past six years, Spring has run a flow cytometry and cell sorting core facility serving nearly 45 laboratories and 500 scientists in the Keenan Research Centre for Biomedical Science at St. Michael’s Hospital. He also currently serves as the co-president of the Canadian Microscopy and Cytometry Association.
LabRoots will host the webinar, with no cost for participants, beginning at 9 a.m. PT, 12 p.m. ET on November 30, 2016. To read full event details or to register for free, click here.
