The Nordic Meeting 2022 will be held on Thursday to Friday, February 10th and 11th.

The basic flow cytometry course will be held on Wednesday 9th of February.

Place; Oslo, X meeting point, Kragerudveien 50, 2013 Skjetten, Norway.

Participants that have registered and paid for the Nordic meeting 2020/21, will still be registered as attendees for the Nordic meeting 2022 (the payment covers the 2022 meeting).

66th meeting in DSFCM

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 66th meeting of the Danish society for flow cytometry.

Virtual fluorophore update meeting

So many new fluorophores have emerged and we are still using the same dyes we are used to…… Many of the new dyes are brighter than the commonly used and have a narrow emission spectra.

To inform and inspire you, we have invited 6 companies to give a short introduction/presentation of their new and exciting dyes.

Friday 29th of January 12:00-13:15.
