ThermoFisher Scientific is hosting Flow Cytometry Technical Seminars Monday November 6th

Please see details below for 2 seminars being presented Monday November 6th in Hammer 303. Lunch will be provided at each seminar. Advanced registration is required

To register: and please indicate which session(s) you would like to attend.


Session 1: 11:45 AM-12:45 PM

Topic: Tools for advanced flow cytometry applications

Flow cytometry is an ever advancing platform for scientific research. In this seminar we will cover tools to techniques to keep you producing excellent quality flow cytometry data at the cutting edge.

Some of the topics that will be covered are as follows:

  1. New SuperBright polymer dyes provide expanded fluorochrome options for the violet laser
  2. Improving data quality through the use of fixable viability dyes.
  3. The cell proliferation and biomolecule labeling applications of Click-iT technology.
  4. Rare event and rapid cell acquisition with acoustic focusing in flow cytometry


Session 2: 1:15 PM-2:15PM

Topic: Protein multiplexing and multiplex RNA quantitation using Luminex

Invitrogen ProcartaPlex multiplex immunoassays use the Luminex xMAP (multianalyte profiling) technology that enables the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 80 protein targets in a  single 25–50 μL sample of plasma, serum, cell culture supernatants, and other bodily fluids.

Invitrogen QuantiGene Plex Assay utilizes xMAP Luminex beads for multiplexed gene expression quantitation upto 80 RNA targets in every well of a 96-well plate.

Invitrogen QuantiGene Plex DNA assay combines branched DNA (bDNA) signal amplification and multianalyte profiling beads (xMAP™) technologies to enable the detection and quantitation up to 34 DNA targets in every well on 96-well plates.
