To use analysers, please note:

If you wish to use the analysers with any potentially infectious or harmful material, or are using primary human tissue, you must submit a risk assessment as well as inform FlowCore staff prior to booking.
FlowCore will reject any material deemed hazardous to staff or other users. Further information regarding flow cytometry biosafety can be found here.

FlowCore analyser training consists of a series of videos which walk users through a virtual experiment, as well as general information relating to flow cytometry and the use of FlowCore facilities.
Due to a large volume of our users currently working from home, we have made the training material temporarily available online. The video portion of the training content is available by individual request only. This is for record keeping purposes. Requests can be made to Kathryn.Flanagan@monash.edu
A link to a quiz is included with the training videos. This quiz must be completed along with the videos. The link to the quiz is also available here.
