Speakers
  • SVM Professor of Cytomics, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Purdue University
    Biography
      J. Paul Robinson is the SVM Professor of Cytomics in the College of Veterinary Medicine and a professor of biomedical engineering in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. He received his Ph.D. in Immunopathology from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan Medical School. He is currently the director of the Purdue University Cytometry Laboratories at Purdue University.

      He is a past President of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry, is the Editor- in-Chief of Current Protocols in Cytometry, Associate Editor of Histochemica et Cytobiologica, and Associate Editor of Cytometry Part A. He is an active researcher with over 155 peer reviewed publications, 29 book chapters, has edited 9 books and has
      given over 120 international lectures and taught advanced courses in over a dozen countries and made over 350 conference presentations. Dr. Robinson was an early adopter
      of web-based educational materials. He has received numerous awards, was elected to the College of Fellows, American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering (AIMBE) in 2004, received the Pfizer Award for Innovative Research in 2004 and the Gamma Sigma Delta Award of Merit Research in 2002.

      He has participated in many NIH, NSF and private foundation review boards.

    Abstract:
    In this webinar, you will learn about an innovative approach to a traditional technology which encompasses several advanced features that are unusual for a flow cytometer.  For example, the CytoFLEX includes a communications technology called Wavelength Division Multiplier (WDM) that changes the paradigm of light collection techniques in flow cytometry.  This technology is also transformational in that it integrates APDs (Avalanche photo diode) instead of photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) for fluorescence detection.  This is a revolutionary concept reduces the physical size and complexity of the instrument without compromising sensitivity and quality.  This webinar will include animated videos to help explain this new approach to cytometry.  At the end you will understand how new technology has been incorporated into the CytoFLEX flow cytometer to give you the edge in your research.
