WCMP to hold symposium on ImageStream technology

Issued: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 09:25:00 BST

On August 22, the WCMP is holding a symposium on ImageStream technology.

Imaging flow cytometry blends aspects of flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy allowing qualitative and quantitative analysis of large amounts of data. The Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology (WCMP) recently installed an ImageStreamX Mark II, the first of its kind in Scotland.

This symposium is for the growing community of users of this technique, especially those working in immunology and parasitology. There are a number of external speakers at the symposium including Stephen Cobbold from the University of Oxford, David Jamieson from the University of Newcastle, and Holger Hennig from the University of Rostock.

Tickets are still available through Eventbrite, and the symposium will be held in the Charles Wilson Lecture Theatre at the University of Glasgow. A training day will be held the following day on August 23rd.

We are grateful to Merck for their sponsorship of this event.
