The traditional techniques of standard microscopy and flow cytometry have been the stalwart of cell analysis for many years. But times have changed—scientific breakthroughs, grant applications, and publications wait for no one—and there are now a host of new technologies that complement these traditional modalities. With the advent of automation and high-throughput technologies, researchers no longer need to spend hours in a darkroom to capture a simple fluorescent image, painstakingly measuring cell parameters one cell at a time, or risk losing precious samples due to mechanical issues. Our panelists will explain how applying the latest cutting-edge technologies, such as high-content analysis and superresolution microscopy, as well as other advances in flow cytometry and microscopy, can lead to new discoveries while saving time and making your lab more efficient and productive.
