  • Researchers face a make-it-or-break-it situation to get published, funded, or promoted. You’ve spent long enough on your research and need to publish your paper, get funded, get promoted, or apply for a patent. You realize that the outcome of your research can put you at the forefront of your field but your experience has been lagging.
  • Researchers who are in a time crunch. You’re attempting to faithfully work your way through the Expert Cytometry or other flow cytometry materials. But due to your hectic schedule, you need more accountability and structure to ensure you complete the background you need.
  • Researchers who’ve experienced a crushing disappointment. You thought you were one step away from a publication, grant, or patent but you were rejected due to poor methodology.

The Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key Provides Personalized Access To Tim Bushnell, PhD & His Team Of Industry Experts

The Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key gives you intimate, personalized access to Tim Bushnell, PhD and his expert flow cytometry team.

Every week, you’ll turn in your Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key workbooks. Then, Tim Bushnell and the rest of the team will walk through how to overcome the challenges you’re facing in your research, while also teaching you core flow cytometry principles and providing leading-edge insights.

You’ll also get access to an advanced, one-of-a-kind & professional WhatsApp Flow Cytometry Acceleration group. With our WhatsApp Flow Cytometry Acceleration Group, you’ll have an exclusive channel for accessing Dr. Bushnell and our team of flow cytometry consultants so you can get your questions answered 24/7.

Thanks to the Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key system, you’ll get personalized feedback and data that will advance your flow cytometry experiments & understanding.

Read this from Glenn Begley’s recent review in Circulation Research, entitled “Reproducibility in Science”.

“The estimates for irreproducibility based on these empirical observations range from 75% to 90%. These estimates fit remarkably well with estimates of 85% for the proportion of biomedical research that is wasted at-large. This irreproducibility is…seen across the spectrum of biomedical research.”

The Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key is superior to anything we’ve offered before. Currently, the Expert Cytometry do-it-yourself Technical Program gives you fundamental flow cytometry knowledge…as well as a support network thanks to our private group.

It’s helpful to browse the materials in your Expert Cytometry dashboard and interact with other Expert Cytometry members online.

But that isn’t the same thing as accountability.

The Expert Cytometry membership doesn’t include a formalized structure to hold you accountable to your flow cytometry experimental goals.

This autonomy might work fine for some researchers…but it may be less than ideal for others.

In fact, research indicates that having a small group to hold you accountable increases your chances of turning your objectives into reality. Thus, accelerating your goals – like getting your research published, funded or patented.

Here’s the Targeted Mentoring You’ll Receive From The Flow Cytometry Acceleration Key...

Principles and best practices for compensation

We will start with the three rules of compensation, this lecture will delve into the process of compensation, and provide an understanding of the underlying assumptions of the three rules. Dr. Bushnell will work with you to design the antibody panels for your individual compensation experiments, including titration and everything that follows.

Essential controls in cytometry

With the reproducibility crisis in science at the forefront of people’s minds, it is critical that your flow cytometry experiments contain the necessary controls for proper data interpretation and this topic will ensure you have the right controls. Dr. Bushnell will map out a strategy for controlling your individual experiment so you can be sure your data is reproducible.

Compensation practice with FlowJo & other software

Using a 5-color dataset with both beads and cells to practice automated compensation and while testing the assumptions of the three rules of compensation. Dr. Bushnell will also work with you in whatever data analysis software you are using to help you properly gate on your cells of interest and to generate flawless figures.

Data analysis & statistics

Data analysis starts during the experimental design process, and ends with statistical analysis. Dr. Bushnell will teach you stats at the highest level relating to your flow experiments and will help you design statistical tables for your experimental outputs.

Designing experimental workflows

A flow cytometry experiment is more than adding some cells and antibodies together, especially if the experiment will be part of a larger study. This process includes the design, optimization, validation, execution, analysis and reporting of the final results. Dr. Bushnell will focus on these steps for you and your individual experimental goals.

High-throughput data analysis with FlowJo & other software

Using a high-throughput, high-dimensional dataset, you will learn how to establish an analysis workflow in Flow JoX, along with some tips and tricks to make secondary analysis easier. Regardless of what software you use for your experiments, Dr. Bushnell will work with you to analyze your high-throughput data sets correctly.

Troubleshooting negative data and sticking points

Murphy’s law is bound to strike when you least expect it. This meeting will cover some important concepts in identifying and solving some of the most common flow cytometry errors. Dr. Bushnell will work with you to uncover why your experiments are not working and develop personalized strategies for you to overcome these sticking points.

Antibody Panel Optimization

This meeting will take a deep dive on steps to help improve the quality of your flow cytometry antibody panels. Whether you need to build a 4-color panel, a 14-color panel, or a 24-color panel (which is now possible), Dr. Bushnell will help you design the panel that’s right for you and your situation. This meeting will also cover topics including choosing the right machine, implementing experimental controls and the theory of validation.

Advanced Principles Of Antibody Panel Design

The antibody panel is central to the flow cytometry experiment. Building on the concepts already presented, this meeting will provide a theoretical guide to designing a flow cytometry antibody panel that is 8-colors or more using the information about the instrument, fluorochrome, and the cells at hand.

Advanced Antibody Panel Design Exercise

Using the theory described in previous meetings, Dr. Bushnell will design a polychromatic panel to help you answer a pressing biological question or other scientific question that you have brought to the meeting. With the information provided, you will design and present your antibody panel in real-time.

Addressing Reproducibility In Real-Time

Glen Begley described the fact that only 11% of 53 landmark oncology studies were reproducible. With the time, money and effort poured forth in biomedical research, it is critical that we do better. This meeting will use “Begley’s rules” to review the mindset for improving reproducibility. Dr. Bushnell will then provide you with a personalized plan for reproducibility success.



Advanced Statistical Analysis

When all is said and done, flow cytometry data can be used to support or refute an experimental hypothesis. This meeting will discuss the theory and considerations that should be considered for proper statistical analysis. Dr. Bushnell will dive deeply into your data analyses and help you perform advanced statistical analyses to ensure that your data gets published, funded, and/or patented.

Rare Event Detection

With the ability to measure millions of events in short order, flow cytometry is an ideal tool for looking for the cellular needle in the body’s haystack. This meeting will cover three areas that are critical to monitor to be successful in rare event analysis. Dr. Bushnell will work with you on how rare event analyses can improve your recent or proposed experiments.

Principles Of Cell Sorting

Isolation of cells for downstream applications, especially genomic analysis, is an extremely valuable tool for researchers. Even if you are not running a cell sorter, this lecture will provide practical tips for designing your next sorting experiment. Dr. Bushnell will work with you individually to create a plan for a cell sorting experiment that can help your current or future work get published, funded or patented.
