To complement our modular training courses, currently run virtually, the Flow Cytometry team are excited to announce the launch of Flow Building Blocks. These will be shared regularly to BI and external scientists on a monthly basis, to help build everyone’s knowledge about flow cytometry. The team will be covering both practical and theoretical aspects of flow cytometry which will compliment one another to build a robust repository.
