Flow cytometry guided learning

Designed for beginners, our guided learning experiences and eLearning courses were developed to present experimental and research topics in modular fashion, allowing users to tackle one topic at a time at their own pace. Choose a topic below and get started!


Molecular Probes School of Fluorescence

The Molecular Probes School of Fluorescence was developed by our in-house bench scientists, featuring everything we wish we'd known when we first started working with fluorescent reagents, including the basics of fluorescence, imaging, and flow cytometry.

eLearning Courses

Our eLearning courses were developed to provide a succinct, contextual summary of common laboratory techniques and methods only used by researchers with an interest in protein and cell analysis workflows.

Flow cytometry subtopics

Areas of biology information

Flow cytometry is a powerful tool in the study of many areas of biology. In this subtopic section you will find educational assets for help with immunology, immuno-oncology, cancer, stem cell research and more.

Cell isolation, expansion and differentiation information

Cell isolation, expansion and differentiation are critical processes and techniques for studying cell biology. Here you will find educational resources including videos, application notes and articles to help you better understand these processes.

Controls, compensation and calibration information

Controls, compensation and calibration are all critical to obtaining accurate results in flow cytometric analysis. In this section you will find educational resources to help you set up your flow cytometer and analyze your samples.

Flow cytometry assays information

Learn about assays and techniques for detecting and monitoring cell health and function by flow cytometry. Topics include apoptosis, cell counting, proliferation and viability as well as cell cycle, endocytosis, oxidative stress and more.

Flow cytometry instrumentation information

These resources will help you increase your understanding of the fundamentals and scientific principles of flow cytometry, and expand your abilities for specialty applications and techniques.

* The use or any variation of the word “validation” refers only to research use antibodies that were subject to functional testing to confirm that the antibody can be used with the research techniques indicated. It does not ensure that the product, or products were validated for clinical or diagnostic use.
