Following the success of our first Flow Cytometry series in March  (links to recordings below), Researcher Live brings you ‘Flow Cytometry vol 2’ –  a July-August edition! Sign up here to receive email reminders for this collection!


Join our third episode on 5th August at 10am BST / 9am GMT with Dr Andrew Filby, director of the Newcastle Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) and recognised contributor to the cytometry community.


What are we going to talk about in this episode?


Conventional flow cytometry is a very powerful analytical technology that can measure multiple features on hundreds of thousands to millions of single cells at rates approaching 10,000 per second. It is used in both discovery research, clinical/translational studies, and clinical diagnostics.  Flow cytometry is not only restricted to measuring mammalian cells but can also be deployed to analyse bacteria, yeast and biological or synthetic micro particles as well as a multitude of other weird and wonderful applications.  One major drawback of conventional flow cytometers is the lack of any morphological or spatial information.  To overcome this issue, Imaging Flow Cytometry (IFC) was developed over 10 years ago and has become one of the most fast-moving areas of cytometry technology development.  In this event we will discuss the basic principles of IFC and highlight some interesting use cases where the combination of image data with fast cell acquisition rates was key to answering specific question in biomedical research. 


Series programme:


  • 27th July, 4pm BST / 3pm GMT - ‘Studying Cell Proliferation by Flow Cytometry’ with Derek Davies, Francis Crick Institute


  • 29th July, 10am BST/ 9am GMT - ‘Making the Most of Flow Cytometry in Nanopharmacology’ with Dr Marie-Christine Jones, University of Birmingham


  • 5th August, 10am BST/9am GMT – ‘ When image is everything:  The principles of Image Flow Cytometry and it’s use in biomedical research’, Dr Andrew Filby, Newcastle University

Date and Time
Friday, August 5, 2022
10:00 am BST / 09:00 am GMT
Speakers Avatar Dr Andrew Filby, Newcastle University

Andrew is the leader of "Innovation Methodology and Application" (IMA) research theme in the Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS).  He serves on the Faculty Research and Innovation Committee (FRIC). He is the director of the Newcastle Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF), part of the Newcastle University Single Cell Unit (NUSCU). His group has been developing, validating and applying both imaging and non-imaging cytometry-based methods to study several important aspects of cell biology and support various key research themes here at NU. 

He won the award for best paper in Cytometry part A in 2011 and also made key contributions to work published in Nature (2018 and 2019), Science (2012, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020) and Cell (2013).  He is also on the editorial board of the Cytometry Part A journal, specialising in imaging cytometry data and recently published some guidelines for data standards in the field.  He was selected in 2014 by the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) as one of only three individuals worldwide to be part of the Shared Resource Laboratory (SRL) emerging leaders’ programme.  This is a scholarship that recognises exceptional contribution to the worldwide cytometry community from those working in core facilities.
