Immunodiagnostics and Clinical Flow Cytometry

About this program

Laboratory scientists from all over the world have taken interest in this topic. This program will train laboratory scientists to use the techniques and flow cytometry equipment to diagnose various medical conditions and learn the techniques to arrive at a diagnosis quicker and with more accuracy. This certificate program is made up of three, two-credit courses. The first two courses are only available online, and the third is a one-week lab taught on the main campus of Michigan State University.

BLD 850 – Concepts in Immunodiagnostics (2 Credits) – is taught during the fall and spring semesters and will educate students on the immunology principles and theory applied to diagnostic evaluation of the host immune response during health and disease stages of life.

BLD 851 – Clinical Applications of Immunodiagnostics (2 Credits) – is taught during the spring and summer semesters, and will help students to discuss and develop skills in immunodiagnostics theories and principles applied to clinical assay develop and method evaluation.

BLD 852 – Immunodiagnostics Laboratory (2 Credits) – is taught during the summer semester, is a one-week hands-on experience performing immunopurifications, in vitro diagnostic assays, basic flow cytometry, and subsequent data analysis with quality control evaluation.

Who should take this program?

This post-baccalaureate program assumes you have a minimum of a four-year bachelor’s degree and have worked in a laboratory. Laboratory scientists that desire to learn how to implement immunodiagnostics and clinical flow cytometry to help diagnose medical conditions using testing protocols and assays that will support their diagnosis.
