The exercises include a theoretical part:

  • Basics of cell sorting
  • Sorting strategies
  • Functionality of cell sorting
  • Possibilities of cell sorting

The practical part covers the points:

  • Instrument settings (purity and yield)
  • Setting the sample beam
  • Nozzle selection
  • Pre-treatment and filtering of the cells
  • Sorting (collected and single cell sorting)
  • Purity control

The costs of 300,- € for the doctoral students are covered by the VMF's promotion of young researchers.
