    ChUG Podcast #11 - 2022 in Review

    Here at ChUG in Cytometry, we aim to be the most relevant that we can be! This is why we decided to comment on events that have not happened yet! Laura Johnston, Pat Simms, Robot Ryan Duggan and David Leclerc discuss upcoming flow meetings, what's going on at ISAC, cells sorters, David is shilling for industry, and hiring new staff in SRLs. We also say goodbye to Laura who is moving to back to Seattle.

    ChUG Podcast #10 - The Flood of '21

    The CAT Facility lost a few instruments due to some water damage a few months ago and we turned to an Insurance Group to help us out. It's not a common situation for anyone (hopefully), so here's some thoughts on our experience and what can be done to avoid it as much as possible.

    ChUG Podcast #9 - Chatting Around the Dumpster Fire

    The gang is back! Pat Simms, Laura Johnston, Ryan Duggan, and that other guy discuss the latest news in the flow cytometry world in this second edition of Chatting Around the Dumpster Fire. They talk about hiring staff, getting back to work in the COVID era, creating online content in flow, the great floods in history, the Quanteon, CYTO 2021 (it seems they didn't see much of it), and the future of cytometry, both spectral and mass.

    ChUG #8 - Dealing with autofluorescence in spectral flow cytometry

    ChUG #8 - Dealing with autofluorescence in spectral flow cytometry

    We host Monica Delay, US Manager for Technical Application Support at Cytek Biosciences, for a discussion on autofluorescence (AF) and the tools to deal with it in Spectral Flow Cytometry. We use figures to showcase some problems with AF which will be missing from this audio version of our talk. You can visit our website at Chugcytometry.com to find the video, along with a list of links to webinars and publications dealing with AF.

    ChUG #7 - There is no I in 'cell sorter development'

    Our guest is our very good friend James McCracken. We explore his career path from his post-doc at The University of Chicago, to becoming the Core Facility Director of the University of Louisville Diabetes and Obesity Center, to his current position as the Commercial Marketing Manager with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. He has been deeply involved in the development of the newly released CytoFlex SRT cell sorter, so we also discuss the ins and outs of flow cytometry instrumentation development in industry.

    ChUG #6 - Considerations on Online Training

    ChUG #6 - Considerations on Online Training

    Our guests this week are Kathy Daniels, Derek Davies, and Rui Gardner. You will recognize them from the work they have done in training Flow Cytometry users over the year. They have also developed an impressive amount of online content during the pandemic, including the OpenFlow Cytometry series available on YouTube. We sat down to discuss the ins and outs of online training, the opportunities and pitfalls that we have experienced, and some of the features that could stay with us once we are back in a normal environment.
