Dr. Xin Maggie Wang

Affiliation : Scientific Platforms Director at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research, Sydney, Australia

Title of the Talk/Lab :Quality Control & Assessment in Flow Cytometry

Dr Xin Maggie Wang obtained her Master of Science in medicine in 2001 and Ph.D. in 2007 from the Faculty of Medicine, the University of Sydney, Australia. After one-year postdoc training in the Liver Enzymes in Metabolism and Inflammation Program at the Centenary Institute, she took the senior flow cytometry scientist position at the Western Sydney Area Health in 2008 and became the manager of the Westmead Research Hub flow cytometry core facility in 2011. In 2016, she was promoted as the Scientific Platforms Manager and then the Scientific Platforms Director in 2019.

She is now responsible for eight scientific platforms including flow cytometry at the Westmead Institute for Medical Research and the Westmead Research Hub. For the last 12 years she has been heavily involved in flow cytometry training and education, facility design and operation, technology upgrade, application development and biosafety procedure implementation.

Maggie is actively interacting with local and international cytometry societies and has been a member of the Australasian Cytometry Society (ACS) since 2008 and a member of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) since 2009. Working as a faculty member of the ISAC Live Educational Task Force, she presented at a number of Flow Cytometry Workshops. She was on the ACS SRL Advisory Council in 2018 and 2019. Now, she is a member of the Live Education Task Force and the SRL Recognition Program Task Force of ISAC as well as a committee member of the Chinese Society of Biotechnology.

Lecture and Lab – Quality Control & Assessment in Flow Cytometry.

This module will discuss the needs & methods for daily instrument QC, instrument performance tracking down, troubleshooting and interpretation of the QC result. The inter-experimental QC for long term projects will be also discussed.

We will also discuss the daily QC techniques for instrument monitoring and tracking and how to interpret the QC result and perform troubleshooting.
