Formed in June 2006 to promote the interaction between all users of flow and imaging cytometry within the UK. They hold regional meetings to foster interaction between users and promote new applications and techniques. In addition this site acts as a central resource for links, protocols, meeting advertisments and other relevant information.
Huge, sprawling site with loads of information. Includes tutorials, reference materials, current protocols, and more. Home to the General Cytometry Email List (searchable emailing list with questions and answers), an international mailing list for flow cytometry users.
