The workshop was organized by Dr. Satish Totey, Chief Scientific Officer of Stempeutics, Kuala Lumpur and Awtar Krishan of the University of Miami with the express purpose of training researchers from Malaysia and the neighboring countries in the latest methods for flow cytometric analysis.

Their efforts were complemented by 15 technical and the support staff and engineers from Beckman Coulter, Becton Dickinson and Guava Technologies who made their instruments, technical staff and reagents available for the wet labs.

Forty two students attended labs and lectures and another forty nine students from Malaysia and neighboring countries attended the lectures.

Future plans: An organizing committee has been formed to continue the ASEAN workshops in Flow cytometry. We expect to hold the 2nd and 3rd ASEAN workshops in Singapore and Bangkok, Thailand.
