At present, he is actively involved in EuroFlow Primary Immunodeficiency workpackage and EuroFlow proficiency testing. Tomáš is also an ISAC Scholar.
Webinar will focus on standardization of the flow cytometry experimental procedures so that data analysis can be performed in an interlaboratory setting, on multiple instruments and over prolonged periods of time. Various aspects of reproducibility and robustness will be discussed. Since development of standardized flow cytometry tests is essential for meaningful computational analyses of the data, the new possibilities that are just opening will be discussed.
