15th ANNUAL CLINICAL COURSE IN FLOW CYTOMETRY
A comprehensive, intensive HANDS-ON course on the basics of flow cytometry
analyses in the clinical laboratory covering major current clinical
applications, as well as selected advanced topics. Emphasis is placed on
the technical aspects of the methodology and data analysis including
clinicopathologic correlation to stress the role of cytometry as part of an
integrated diagnostic approach. This session is targeted at the laboratory
technologist, supervisor and director, as well as pathologists.
Participants will take a hands-on active role in sample preparation, data
analysis, discussion of results and assessment of problems/limitations of
the technology. The course consists of lectures (~10 hrs), hands-on core
laboratories (~20 hrs), and discussion groups (~6 hrs) covering basic and
advanced topics in clinical cytometry including immunodeficiency, acute
leukemias, lymphoproliferative disorders, minimum residual disease
detection, apoptosis, DNA/cell cycle, stem cells, and platelet analyses.
Weeklong project labs (~12 hrs) offer intensive investigation in one area.
Topics will include functional analyses, bead based analyses, and the role
of cytometry in therapeutic monitoring. Join us for a week of fun and
