Dr. Giacomo Vacca, Invited Speaker at Photonics Media’s BioPhotonics Conference, to Speak on Flow Cytometry
Join Dr. Giacomo Vacca for this special presentation at Photonics Media’s BioPhotonics Conference. As an invited speaker, he will chronicle recent advances in flow cytometry.
With the expansion of applications for the technology, the field has flourished. However, there are still basic bottlenecks to overcome. Dr. Vacca discusses an enabling technology being developed at Kinetic River that can overcome some of these challenges.
Here is an excerpt from the description of “Flow Cytometry: Come a Long Way, Much Left to Do”:
Flow cytometry is a ubiquitous technique used for diverse applications like basic research in cell biology, immunology, and oncology; as a diagnostic/prognostic tool for hematology and organ transplantation; to monitor water quality in reservoirs, to verify the safety of milk supplies; and to perform bull sperm sex selection. Applications drive technology development, with requirements for “faster, better, cheaper” pushing the envelope of what can be done. For example, over the last 10 years various advances, including the fine slicing of the visible spectrum, have helped to increase the practical number of simultaneously measurable cell parameters from about 15 to more than 30.
Mark your calendars for October 28, 2021, for Dr. Vacca’s presentation at 2 pm EDT and be sure to register.
