LUMC Flow cytometry Core Facility (FCF)

Education and symposium

The FCF provides a beginners course about the basics of flow cytometry for new users. Advanced courses and a symposium about new developments in flow and mass cytometry are organized to update users and others with an interest in these topics and to stimulate interaction between users. All courses and symposia take place at LUMC.

Beginners course

A two-day beginners course in flow cytometry is organized approximately once a month. A theoretical background is provided on day 1, while hands-on practical information is given on day 2. Courses will be announced here and via our newsletter.

The next beginners courses are organized on October 1-2, November 12-13 and December 3-4, 2018. To register, please contact the FCF operators.

Advanced course

We will provide courses on advanced topics in flow cytometry three times per year: cell sorting, 12+ color panel design and analyses, CyTOF, etc. Advanced courses will be announced here and via our newsletter.

FCF symposium

Following the successful FCF Opening Symposium in 2017, where we welcomed almost 300 participants, we are now planning the 2nd FCF Symposium. Updates will be posted on this website.
