About the Workshop We are happy to announce the first multicolor flow cytometry workshop at NIRT-ICMR in collaboration with Becton Dickinson, India, from November 2-3, 2017 at NIRT-ICMR. The workshop will focus on the basics of multi-colour immunophenotyping. Over the last decade, there have been significant advances in flow cytometry instrument design and fluorochrome dye chemistry, bringing 8- 18 colour analysis within the easy reach of many. The intent of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to understand the fundamentals of flow cytometry, multicolor panel design, instrument setup, validation, assay standardization and data analysis. 

Key learning objectives
