Education

The Department of Flow and Image Cytometry teaches various free courses to educate the Roswell and Buffalo community on the techniques employed in our facility. Courses typically take about 3 hours and have a lecture presentation as well as a lab demo part. For information on the dates and location of our classes, please consult the sign-up sheets in the hallway next to the Grossberg library (CCC Rm 314) or contact us at (716) 845-8471.

For beginners in Flow Cytometry and those new to our facility, we request that you take the Introduction to Flow Cytometry course before using the instruments outside regular business hours when no supervision is available. One-on-one training on the equipment is freely available to everyone upon prearrangement with the core staff. It is highly recommended that after taking the Introductory Course you schedule a one-on-one session with a member of our staff when you are ready to acquire and analyze your data. Please contact us at x8471.

On this website, you will find links to various resources that provide useful background information and tutorials. If you are new to flow cytometry, you will find it particularly useful to do the 12-minute Invitrogen tutorial “How a flow cytometer works” before you embark on any experiments.
