Live Technical Webinar: Compensation in Flow Cytometry

Date: June 28, 2018

About this Webinar

Compensation in flow cytometry can often be challenging and sometimes confusing, however doing compensation correctly is absolutely essential for valid and optimal analyses of multicolor flow cytometry experiments. This webinar will discuss fluorescence spillover, compensation, how to calculate compensation accurately, best practices and considerations for control samples, and some challenges that may be encountered. Participants will learn tips and tricks on how to prepare high-quality compensation controls and how to create an optimal compensation matrix, resulting in higher confidence in data analyses and more robust data.
