LUNCHEON WORKSHOP 6: AML MRD: A PRACTICAL APPROACH (DRY LAB)
Sindhu Cherian

Workshop 6 is a hands on computer based workshop designed for the participant with experience in diagnostic clinical flow cytometry who is currently performing or planning to undertake AML MRD testing in their laboratory.  A practical understanding of the basic principles of diagnostic clinical flow cytometry is required and some prior exposure to AML MRD theory is desirable to allow the participant to get the most out of this workshop.  For the participant who has not previously performed MRD testing in their laboratories, Luncheon Workshop 1 is recommended as a pre-requisite.  If you have questions about whether this workshop is right for you, please contact us at info@cytometry.org.
