Laser technology has been used for detection and analysis of tumor cells and other molecules of diagnostic and therapeutic value. Laser flow cytometry is extensively used for study of cellular proliferation, phenotype and marker expression.
The Indo-US Cytometry workshops were initiated by Dr. Awtar Krishan in collaboration with Dr. Ranbir Sobti and Dr. Arvinder Singh with the express purpose of interfacing Indian researchers with experts in cytometry from abroad. With the collaboration of instrument manufacturers who provide their latest instruments and staff for the workshops, and a growing group of core faculty members, a large number of Indian researchers have been trained in the latest methods of cytometric analysis.
We have used the Indo-US workshop model to conduct workshops in ASEAN countries (Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Bangkok), Turkey (Istanbul, Marmara, Ankara, Antalya) and in China (Shanghai).
The table below lists the Cytometry workshops held so far and those planned for the future.
