The upcoming National Meeting will take place in Tromsø (hosted by UIT) from June 5th to 7th, 2024.

NFCF welcomes you to the 12th national NFCF meeting in collaboration with the University of Tromsø. Registrations covers full-board and accomodation at Thon Hotel Tromsø.  There will be a Banquet dinner at Kystens Mathus on Thursday evening for continued social networking. You will get the chance to sign up for the additional 1 day pre-course with a focus on High-parameter Flow Cytometry. Local participants gets the chance to sign up without accomodation.

There’s only a few hotel rooms left, we will close registration options with hotel room as soon as the limit is reached. Day package-registrations will still be bookable until April 30th.

Optional Pre-course: Wednesday June 5th (from 13:30) to Thursday June 6th (lunchtime)

Presented by Mikkel S. Pettersen (Aarhus University Hospital) and Charlotte C. Pettersen (Aarhus University) and data analysis software specialist from Cytobank, FCS Express and FlowJo. The course will be covering the following topics:

–Flow Cytometry Basics, Fluorochromes, spectra and compensation

–Full Spectrum Flow Cytometry, High-parameter Experiment and panel design

–High-parameter Data analysis

–Practical use of relevant Flow cytometry software in analysis of high-parameter data

National meeting : Thursday June 6th (from 13:30) to Friday June 7th (afternoon)

In recent years, the field of flow cytometry has witnessed a significant transformation, thanks to cutting-edge technologies like mass cytometry and spectral flow cytometry. These innovations produce vast volumes of data when compared to traditional flow cytometry. In preparation for the meeting, we have arranged a comprehensive course designed to offer an in-depth introduction to flow cytometry and the latest technologies. It will also emphasize the skill of effectively managing high-dimensional data using advanced software tools.

The course and the meeting serve as excellent platforms for networking, sharing invaluable experiences, and, not to forget, savoring the enchanting beauty of Tromsø under the mesmerizing midnight sun.
