Before user training, it is good to get acquainted with basic flow cytometry (see end of the page). Remember to consider the experiment in hand (e.g. do you need to collect the cells of interest or just to analyse and how many or what kind of fluorocromes/markers/proteins will define intrument need). Contact personnel if you are planning a new experiment or have any questions. The training includes hands-on training for the instrument, usually one or two 2-3 h period with practical guidance for working in the facility and help with the first experiment set up. Remember then to schedule the first run with the personnel.
Trainings are limited but you can request a training from iLab reservation system from "request services"-tab and we will get back to you for suggestions to schedule training time. You can register to the reservation system from the Fees and reservation system page.
Please contact the core personnel for more precise information on schedules. You can register to the reservation system from the Fees and reservation system page.
