With effect from Monday 19th November 2018, Mr Liam Whitby will be taking over the position of Director of UK NEQAS for Leucocyte Immunophenotyping. This follows the retirement of the previous post holder Professor David Barnett. Liam will already be well known to our participants having worked at UK NEQAS for Leucocyte Immunophenotyping for over 20 years. He has significant experience in the provision of external quality assessment and is looking forward to the opportunity to develop the programmes offered by this centre to ensure they continue to meet the requirements of all participating laboratories.
This meeting, taking place on Wednesday 24th October 2018 at 1 America Square in London, is for laboratory staff and clinicians in the fields of flow cytometry, cytogenetic and molecular biology looking to obtain more accurate and reliable results. This meeting will consist of a number of informative, educational talks full of information to take back to the workplace as well as an exhibition of leading companies in the field.
Please see the flyer attached below for more information.
This course is aimed at both life science and clinical science fields, with the common fundamentals covered on day 1 and 2. The course then splits into life science and clinical orientated modules, from practical demonstrations to lectures highlighting not just the applications, but best practise as well.
