Flow cytometry allows you to have the flexibility to evaluate samples from multiple species in a single experiment. The key to making this work is having flow cytometry staining panels that are cross-reactive and still allow discrete cells to be distinguished from each other in a single run.Read the full article »
Immune cell infiltration is essential for anti-tumor responses because immune cells must be able to be in close proximity to tumor cells for these responses to be effective. Flow cytometry is a flexible and powerful tool for detecting and monitoring the presence of infiltrating immune cells, or TIL, and can be customized to detect any immune cell subset.
Consider these questions as you think about assessing infiltrating immune cells with flow cytometry in your Immuno-Oncology (IO) research.Read the full article »
Not too long ago, four-color flow cytometers were widely used for immunophenotyping and provided reliable and cutting edge data. Now, flow cytometry staining panels can include up to 50 colors and provide you with the ability to immunophenotype multiple cell subsets at once. These highly complex panels are attractive because so much data can be gathered from a single experiment, but the sheer size of the staining panel can feel daunting to the most experienced flow cytometry user.Read the full article »
