Antibody based technologies

The course is addressed to current and potential facility users such as PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees within Life Science at any Swedish university, curious about antibody based methods or in need of antibody based technologies for their research. Applicants with an ongoing project or defined future project where any of the covered technologies are to be used will be prioritized.

The course will focus on antibody based technologies and describe the possibilities of using these technologies within the facilities at SciLifeLab. Lectures will cover both theoretical and more practical aspects of the different applications, including the following technologies:

  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Immunofluorescence
  • Protein array technologies and suspension bead technologies
  • Mass cytometry and flow cytometry
  • Immuno capture/immuno precipitation in combination with mass spectrometry
  • Proximity ligation assays
  • Antibody validation strategies

Apart from general aspects of the technologies, the course will include project presentations to demonstrate the benefits and possibilities of the technologies in different contexts. Last but not least validation strategies of antibodies for different applications will be covered, as this is of outmost importance for adequate output data.

This course is supported by SciLifeLab and run by the SciLifeLab Cell Profiling facility in Stockholm.

Course fee: 1100 SEK.

Application will open on December 10
