Live Webinar – Flow Cytometry 101: How flow cytometry can help advance your research
What is Flow Cytometry?
How are researchers using Flow Cytometry in their projects? How can you isolate specific subpopulations of cells?
AllCells is proud to host this free webinar to help educate researchers and to present data on our Flow Cytometry and Fluorescence-activated Cell Sorting (FACS) contract services. Join our Bioservices Scientists for this exclusive event including a Q&A session following the presentation. The biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry is continuing to implement more flow cytometry-based assays in research and drug discovery due to the flexibility in assay development.
The variety of assays which can be performed continues to expand, giving research laboratories options in data collection ranging from detection of cell signaling pathway activation to immunophenotyping. This webinar will provide an introduction to flow cytometry, a technique that uses fluorescently conjugated antibodies and dyes to identify characteristics in heterogeneous populations of cells. In addition we will present case studies on how flow cytometry can be used in drug discovery.
Date: Thursday, 9/26/13 at 11:00-11:30AM PST
Presented by: Basha Stankovich, Ph.D., Bioservices Manager
Topics to be covered in the webinar:
- Background on Flow Cytometry and Fluorescence-activated Cell Sorting

About AllCells, LLC
AllCells.com is a global biotechnology company founded in 1998 to provide researchers with a reliable supply of biologically relevant, consistent quality primary cells and bioservices that enable the advancement of scientific research in the areas of cell biology, oncology, virology, hematology, infectious disease and stem cell research. Unlike cell lines, which are typically mutated, transformed or immortalized, primary cells retain their original phenotypes hence better reflect in vivo morphology, metabolism and growth characteristics. These attributes are especially important for in vitro research applications where in vivo-like models are critically important. By partnering with AllCells, investigators can dramatically reduce time needed to isolate cells with guaranteed consistency thereby improving the efficiency, accuracy and relevance of their research studies. Now, we also offer a line of Bioservices featuring immunoassays, stem cell assays, flow cytometry services, tissue culture services, protein analysis, and genotyping. AllCells is fully certified in accordance with local, state and federal requirements.
