Hav­ing a deep ex­per­tise in bio­science and ge­nomics, BD Bio­sciences has taken up a lead­er­ship role in evolv­ing Flow Cy­tom­e­try, one of the most ad­vanced tech­niques in Bio­med­i­cal Sci­ences, in the coun­try. With pro­grammes like FACS eLEARN, BD Bio­sciences not only man­aged to bring in­dus­try and academia on one plat­form to de­velop ca­pac­ity in Flow Cy­tom­e­try but with the dig­i­tal for­mat, also is en­abling pro­fes­sion­als from across the coun­try to have an easy ac­cess to ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies.

In the year 2012, BD and Jamia Ham­dard es­tab­lished a flow cy­tom­e­try train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­ity named BD-JH FACS Academy. In last five years, it has trained 750 users across the coun­try and over­seas. En­cour­aged by the over­whelm­ing re­sponse, BD Bio­sciences designed the web based train­ing pro­gram - FACS eLEARN, for pro­fes­sion­als who are al­ready in a job or a reg­u­lar aca­demic pro­gram and may not be avail­able for reg­u­lar contact time with the fac­ulty. The web mo­d­ule and e-mail sup­port pro­gram will be fol­lowed by a hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence on Flow Cy­tom­e­try in­stru­ments and ap­pli­ca­tions at the Academy. The pro­gramme will start from Oc­to­ber 3, 2017 and is open for the reg­is­tra­tion.
