  • Director of the Bioscience Technology Facility, Head of Imaging and Cytometry, Vice-President of the Royal Microscopical Society (POT)
      Peter is Director of the Bioscience Technology Facility at the University of York covering the broad technologies required for a multi-disciplined Department of Biology.

      He has also built up and heads the highly successful Imaging and Cytometry Labs which includes an array of confocal microscopes, flow cytometers, electron microscopes and novel instrumentation. Peter gained his PhD in the Cell Biophysics Laboratory at Essex and has been involved in many aspects of fluorescence imaging and cytometry. Research is currently focused on both technology and method development of novel probes and imaging modalities. His lab provides research support to many academics and commercial organisations and he has ongoing collaborations and consultancy contracts with many leading microscopy and cytometry companies.

      Peter serves on an array of committees for e.g. BBSRC , Vice-President of the RMS and Steering committee for ELMI. Peter is also heavily involved with microscopy and cytometry training through a variety of international courses.
    • Experimental Officer - Imaging and Cytometry (KGH)
        Karen Hogg is an Experimental Officer: Imaging and Cytometry at the University of York, Bioscience Technology Facility. Karen underpins the scientific service within the Imaging and Cytometry Laboratory and takes a lead role in the research, operation and method development of cell sorting and analysis. As such, Karen's expertise is utilized for a wide range of diverse applications both within and external to the Department of Biology. Karen is also a co-organizer and tutor on multiple flow cytometry courses. She obtained her PhD from the School of Biology, University of Leeds, U.K. 1999 and worked in a parasite immunology research group for 4 years before taking up her current role. Karen was awarded the Royal Microscopical Society medal for Flow Cytometry in 2016.

      The need for sensitivity - The CytoFlex family and new capabilities

      Our Imaging and Cytometry Core Lab is in the Bioscience Technology Facility that serves a multidisciplinary Department of Biology as well as external users through our open access approach.  As such, our samples come from many varied user types that span the breadth of biology and beyond! From bacterial samples through to plant samples, immunologists through to cancer research, neurobiology through to stem cell, ecologists through to environmental control.

      Through this webinar, we will firstly look at some novel technologies being exploited at York that will illustrate how cytometry and the need for improved sensitivity is vital. We will look at how best to approach difficult samples types and how we are using the CytoFlex for a wide variety of samples types through both its single tube and its 96 well plate autoloader.

      Learning Objectives:

      •    The need for improved sensitivity

      •    The need for improved resolution

      •    Using the CytoFlex for a wide variety of samples
