This Year's Virtual Course is a 2-Day Event with Separate Registration for Each Day

July 25th, DAY 1 - Getting it Right—The Fundamentals of Building a Clinical Flow Cytometry Laboratory and Producing High Quality Data
This course is intended for individuals working in clinical flow cytometry ranging from technologists and supervisors to trainees and pathologists. It is designed to broaden the participant’s understanding of what it takes to start and maintain a high-quality flow cytometry laboratory, how to optimize flow cytometric data, and how to identify problems with flow cytometric data. Topics covered will include instrument qualification, set up, and standardization; assay development and optimization; assay validation; regulatory and quality issues; laboratory management; strategies for engaging staff; analyzing data, and identifying and troubleshooting problem data. Our experienced and world-renowned faculty bring experience from a variety of clinical, academic, and commercial laboratory settings.

July 26th, DAY 2 - A Practical Approach to Minimal/Measurable Residual Disease Detection (MRD) in Plasma Cell Myeloma by Flow Cytometry
This course is focused on minimal/measurable residual disease detection by flow cytometry in plasma cell myeloma and covers aspects of this testing ranging from technical considerations, to data analysis and assay validation. This course is intended for individuals working in clinical flow cytometry laboratories and would be appropriate for trainees, technologists, supervisors, pathologists, and laboratory directors. The course will be divided into two sections:

Part 1 (AM) will be didactic in nature and cover topics including Instrumentation, panel design, validation, and data analysis.

Part 2 (PM) will be a focus on data analysis and will incorporate didactic content with small group case discussion to highlight potential diagnostic challenges and pitfalls. Part 2 is limited to 50 participants and part 1 is a pre-requisite for part 2.
