Lecture/Lab: Multicolor Panel design: Looking for the expression of specific cellular proteins is the most common application of flow cytometry but with the proliferation of fluorochromes, designing a multicolor panel can be challenging. In this lab, he will cover grammar and vocabulary of fluorochrome characteristics that are important from a panel design perspective with a focus on impact of spectral spillover related spread in limiting the ability to resolve weakly expressed antigens.
