The fast implementation of new instruments and reagents of high-dimensional flow cytometry is associated with an increasing need of training and “on hand” classes for the users of this technology. This includes the organization of educational courses to teach experiment planning and execution together with the modern computational methods to proper reading the “big data” generated from high-dimensional flow cytometry experiments.
To comply with this clinical and experimental needs, UniMiFlow provides on-site courses directed to flow cytometry users including researchers, medical specialists and lab technicians. In particular, we organize:
- Dry courses with frontal lectures and practical reading of the experimental data of high dimensional flow cytometry in informatic laboratories.
- Wet courses that include planning, performing and analyzing high dimensional experiments of flow cytometry and cell sorting of increasing complexity.
The main aim of UniMiFlow courses is to offer a proper training for high dimensional flow cytometry users to improve their knowledge and skills in specific and different issues of this technology both in clinical protocols and experimental projects. The school is equipped with modern and advanced analyzers able to measure up to 50 parameters at the same time even with a spectral technology and of a cell sorter up to 4 different sorting channels.
Given the overlapping analytic features between high dimensional flow cytometry and RNA sequencing and considering the several scientific intersections of these two experimental technologies at single cell level, UniMiFlow also provides dry training courses focused on modern analytic methodologies and bioinformatic approaches for the analysis of data generated from experiments of single cell RNA sequencing.
