Learn essential techniques and best practices for processing human samples to isolate high-quality, functional immune cell types for your downstream applications. This three-day, part-time, and live-streamed training is led by experts from STEMCELL Technologies and consists of interactive lectures and laboratory demonstrations. You’ll learn how to handle, isolate, analyze and cryopreserve your human immune cells quickly and efficiently. You will also have the opportunity to interact with trainers and fellow participants throughout the sessions.

Learning Outcomes:
• Become familiar with commonly available human blood products
• Understand how different human blood products are generated and how they differ in cellular composition
• Be aware of standard methods for processing blood products to obtain leukocytes for downstream applications
• Understand how blood sample processing methods influence the resulting leukocyte populations
• Compare between different technologies that can be used to isolate specific human immune cell subsets
• Be aware of the different parameters that may influence the choice of the cell isolation strategy
• Understand the theory behind common downstream assays of isolated immune cells and their applications
• Gain a basic understanding of flow cytometry and how it is applied to immune cell analysis
• Apply best practices for setting up the proper controls when using flow cytometry to assess isolated cells

As part of the course, you will receive:
• An electronic copy of the course book
• Post-training support from the trainers and Product and Scientific Support team
• A certificate of course completion from STEMCELL Technologies

Space is limited, so please register early for the best chance of securing a seat for your desired date. Registration closes one week before the course date.
