Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) is an important tool for gaining deep biological insights. By gathering specific cells of interest, scientists can elucidate critical cellular functions through downstream assays. However, to obtain viable cells for subsequent assays that still maintain their physiological properties, cells need to be prepared properly and handled carefully. In this webinar, brought to you by BD Bioscience, flow cytometry core laboratory directors Dagna Sheerar and David Haviland will discuss the key factors impacting flow cytometry sorting experiments and how to obtain the best cell samples possible.

Topics to be covered

  • The scientific questions that FACS can help answer
  • How to prepare cellular samples for optimal FACS results
  • How to handle cells post-sorting
