Spectral Flow Cytometry Symposium

The Spectral Flow Cytometry Symposium has a strong focus in ensuring delegates have a highly interactive experience :

  • Listen to talks from international leading academic and industry experts detailing the full spectral cytometry technology and analysis methods,
  • Participate in hands-on workshops to explore a range of cutting-edge equipment and analysis techniques,
  • Meet with technical specialists from leading flow cytometry companies,
  • Explore a range of cutting-edge equipment offered by exhibiting companies.

Key Speakers for 2024

Anna Belkina, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Boston University

Jonathan Irish, Associate Professor at the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University

Christopher Hall, Deputy Flow Cytometry Manager at the Babraham Institute

Christopher Groves, Associate Translational Science R&D Director at Q² Solutions


"Fluorophores in Full Spectrum"

Kelly Lundsten, Director of Strategic Product Innovation, FluoroFinder


"Fifty colors and beyond: The tools and techniques that have enabled Ultra-High Parameter panels."

Aaron TyznikDirector of Scientific Affairs at Becton, Dickinson and Company


“Practical considerations for the optical design of spectral flow cytometers”

Sam Schonsberg, Thermo Fisher



Thanks to the unique set up at the Babraham Institute, the organisers are able to offer interactive workshops on a range of commercially available spectral cytometers. A brand new selection of workshop sessions will be offered to delegates in 2024.


This year the Symposium's workshops will include a focus on the needs of SMEs and Academic Cores.

Topics to include:

  • maintaining in-house cytometers
  • optimal training strategies for in-house flow cytometry users


Further Symposium Information

Tickets provide delegates will full access to the Symposium for both days and a choice of four workshops (bookings for the focused Symposium's workshops will be offered to registered delegates at a later date).

All delegate tickets will provide access to the Symposium Hog Roast that will take place on the evening of the 16th of July.

Discounted tickets are available for academic staff, clinical centres, Facility Cores/Shared Resource Laboratories and Babraham Research Campus attendees.
