Evolution of Flow Cytometry Guidelines for Drug Development and Clinical Testing, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 18, 2015) - This webinar, presented by three Covance scientists in flow cytometry, will address flow cytometry practice guidelines, regulatory considerations, recommendations for instrument validation, recommendations for method development and validation, and assay development and optimization. The complimentary 90-minute broadcast takes place on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 10am EDT / 3pm BST (UK GMT +1).

Flow cytometry is the leading technology for cellular analysis because it allows for the simultaneous detection of numerous characteristics on individual cells. The importance of flow cytometry in the drug development process is increasing -- its high-dimensional approach allows for more specific drug screening processes and the ability to more thoroughly characterize the effects of new drug entities.

While the technology is advancing at a rapid rate, users are hampered by the lack of official regulatory guidance documents regarding the validation of flow cytometric instruments and methods.

Join the presenters from Covance, including Virginia Litwin, Principal Scientist in Hematology/Flow Cytometry, Lisa Green, Manager of Flow Cytometry, and Linsen Du, Lead Scientist, Flow Cytometry/Hematology, for an insightful discussion on this clinically relevant and rapidly evolving topic. A Q&A with the audience will be included at the end of the session.
