High Resolution Microscopy and Flow
Cytometry to Advance your Discovery

Thursday October 10th, 2019
Time: 09:00 – 17:00

09:00-10:00 Registration & Coffee


TranslaTUM, Technische Universität München


Einsteinstraße 25 | 81675 München | Germany

Planner: Technische Universität München together with Luminex

On behalf of the TranslaTUM, Technische Universität München and Luminex we cordially invite you to the 4th joint Austrian, German and Swiss Amnis® User Meeting & Workshop. 

The Amnis® imaging flow cytometry technology uses a unique CCD based optics system and design that provides researchers unparalleled sensitivity and flexibility when analyzing cells and submicron particles. Its combination of multispectral flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy enables novel applications in many different fields of life science and medicine. This includes the classification of normal and aberrant blood cells but also of algae and other microorganism, the detection and quantification of small particles like extracellular vesicles (EVs) and protein aggregates and the functional analysis of cells e.g. in cell-cell interaction, internalization and co-localization assays.  
At the user meeting, researchers will have the chance to network with other users, present their data and experiences with the Amnis® ImageStream® and FlowSight® instruments, followed by a workshop that will give new perspectives focusing on the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in imaging cytometry.
