NIPER-Guwahati in association with Thermo Fischer Scientific organized a Workshop on Flow Cytometry and its Applications from 6th-7thNovember 2017. All the faculty, students and research scholors of NIPER-Guwahati participated in the 2-day workshop and gathered indepth knowledge of Flow Cytometry from the speakers of the workshop viz. Dr. Tribhuban Bind, Dr. Akhilesh Kumar and Debashish Mohanty. The workshop was sponsored by Thermo Fischer Scientific.
Flow Cytometry is one of the most popular and powerful quantitative single cell analysis techniques used in the life sciences and medicine. It was developed in the 1970’s and rapidly be-came an essential instrument for the biologic sciences. Flow cytometry is a technology that concurrently measures and then analyses multiple physical features of single particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light simply detect the expression of fluorescent reporters. Improvements in assay technology are now enabling scientist to detect mRNAs in cells using flow cytometry.
