Dear Students,

 

The practices of "Basic Immunology" will be held in presence form from the 19th April through 3 weeks. The practices will be held in the student laboratories found on the 1st floor of the Department of Immunology and Biotechnology according to the time table. Upon entering our building there will be a body temperature check by the colleagues at the reception. Therefore, we kindly ask everyone to arrive to the entrance of the Department at least 5 minutes before the start of the practice.

 

We pay special attention to keep the public health regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Wearing of face masks during all practices is mandatory. Please bring your own clean white coats for the practices, latex gloves will be provided.

Only healthy students are allowed to participate on the presence practices. Should you experience any symptom of sickness (malaise, fatigue, fever, headache, coughing, running nose etc.) don't come to the practice and inform about this the teacher via email.

 

The planned topics:

            19-23 April - Immunohistochemistry

            26-30 April - Flow cytometry

            03-07 May - Immunserology

 

The theoretical background of these techniques has already been discussed on the online practices on weeks 4 and 5; therefore, we advise the repetition of these materials as a preparation for the presence practices. In addition, we will send out a handout about the practical steps of the presence practices (methodological description) via MS Teams and also publish it on our website (www.immbio.hu).

 

On the practices you are expected to perform the immunological tests independently based on the published handouts. The teachers' task is only to supervise the students' activity and, in case it is needed, to help them out. We will not repeat the theoretical material which was already discussed on the online lessons, however, the knowledge of these basic information is necessary.

 

In the first 10 minutes of the presence practices students will answer test questions based on the lectures of the previous week in the medtraining system, but there will be no practice test at the end.

 

Best regards,
