Breaking Boundaries

Driving Deeper Discovery with High Parameter Flow Cytometry

Over the past ten years, flow cytometry has advanced significantly. Cell surface phenotyping (with 4 or 8 markers) has evolved to allow much more complex multi-parameter cellular assessments that incorporate signal transduction pathways (Phosflow), transcriptional nodes (eg. FoxP3, STAT) and peptide-loaded class restricted multimers. Collectively, these developments enable a more comprehensive understanding of the basic mechanisms underlying cell differentiation, cell division, effector function and cell death.

High Parameter Flow Cytometry (>18 markers) takes the research community to an entirely new capability. By encompassing multiple major areas of development that include marker expression (cellular density), high parameter reagents, instrument innovations, novel polychromatic dyes, novel applications and novel bioinformatics approaches, prior flow boundaries have dramatically been broken.

Basic, clinical and translational biomedical research is being impacted particularly by the ongoing development and evolution of Horizon Brilliant™ polymer dyes for the Blue, Yellow-Green, Violet, Ultra Violet, and deep UV laser lines, all of which are being integrated into the BD FACSymphony™ System. Researchers have been able to utilize this powerful capability to accumulate an unprecedented understanding of interactions between cell surface molecules, kinases and transcription factors.

In a series of seminars, we outline how BD Biosciences and our community of users continue to innovate and drive high parameter flow cytometry applications by sharing advancements and insights in our continued efforts to deliver state of the art tools for discovery to advance the world of health.

We are also delighted to announce that attendees will have a chance to win a one-year complimentary subscription to FlowJo™ or SeqGeq™.
