Webinar Description:

Flow Cytometry has many applications in clinical development allowing rapid and highly specific characterization of cells. In recent years, flow cytometry techniques have established a foothold in preclinical and clinical drug development providing an ability to identify and characterize cell lineage, morphology, activation status and a host of other parameters. The technology can provide critical, high data-resolution insights when evaluating and measuring biological activity and functional endpoints. This webinar will provide an insight into the current applications of flow cytometry in the drug development process, and examine new technologies for the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduction to the principles of flow cytometry and what makes it a powerful analytical technology
  • Review key areas across the drug development pathway supported by flow cytometry assays
  • Highlight key requirements when developing flow cytometry assays
  • Review emerging technology areas and some possible future trends
