Growing a Cytometry Core Facility: Adding Value with Hardware and Education: Innovation (2013 Scientific Tutorials PreCongress Course)
Core facilities are now common in all work settings. Flow cytometry is a well-established technique but the core faces particular challenges in the face of expanding technology. In particular, cores need to bring added value to their users and institutional setting. But how can core facility staff keep up with the latest developments, how can they receive appropriate continuing education and how can this be passed on to users of a facility? We will discuss evaluation of technology and strategies for importing this into a core and also how education on site, at relevant meetings and by remote learning can benefit the facility. At the end of the tutorial the delegate will be aware of the approaches that can be taken to bring added value to the core, its staff and its users.
All CYTO U courses qualify for ICCE continuing education credit.
