Advances in flow cytometry are enabling researchers to routinely run immunophenotyping panels of up to 30 colours, and also make sophisticated metabolic measurements of immune cells. To help you start doing these assays we are holding a “Polychromatic & Immunometabolism Flow Cytometry Workshop” on Wednesday May 29 at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, one day prior to the SgSI 11th Annual Symposium. This day long workshop will give you the tools and understanding to begin doing these cutting edge assays.

The topics and speakers for the workshop are:

  • ·Evolution of flow cytometry: dyes and instrumentation
  • ·Accuracy of correct SOV
  • ·How to incorporate spread into panel design
  • ·Watch outs in sample preparation
  • ·Ez-Strategy for 8-10 color panel
  • ·Strategy for bigger panel

Anis Larbi, SIgN A*STAR

“Polychromatic Flow Cytometry Experiments”

  • ·Reagents and equipment
  • ·Expertise required
  • ·From 2 to 20 parameter flow experiments: practicalities
  • ·Do’s and Don’ts in polychromatic cytometry

Jinmiao Chen, SiGN A*STAR

“Cytofkit2 for automated flow/mass cytometry data analysis”

  • ·Debarcoding
  • ·Bead normalization
  • ·ModalGate for automated pre-gating
  • ·Web-based tool for bench scientists

  • ·Generate automated analysis report

AHL Patricia Jennifer* & Renu Balyan^ *IMCB, A*STAR  ^ Gascoigne lab, NUS

“Measuring Immunometabolism by Flow Cytometry”

  • ·Why Immunometabolism?
  • ·Range of metabolic reagents
  • ·Methods of staining and sample preparation
  • ·Considerations and complications
