Classes in Flow Cytometry

Analyzer class- $150 per person. Class is designed to get a user operational with minimal adivce/assistance from the Flow Core staff. Users must demonstrate proficiency in the operation of the LSR and Fortessa to be considered an "unassisted" user which allows qualified individuals to operate the instruments after hours/on weekends. Only the flow core director and staff determine if an individual is capable of running an instrument unassisted. Just because a user takes the class, it doesn't mean they are automatically listed as "unassisted users".

No training class is available for the sorting instruments.
