Hello all,

I'm a PhD student for a year now and I'm working with flow cytometry for 2.5 years. Since there is no real dedicated FACS-'guru' in our group who I could have learned from, I had to teach practically everything about flow cytometry to myself, including maintenance of the device (a Partec PAS III). I find myself more often in the situation in which I have to teach new students who have never seen a flow cytometer how to work with it and how to interpret the data. Although it works out quite well, I'm very interested on your experiences on how to best teach new people flow cytometry. What do you start with? Do you have something like curriculum you follow when teaching it? What did you start with when you learned it? What should one pay special attention to when teaching?

I'm very interested in hearing your experiences!

Thanks a lot,
