Functional Assays by Flow Cytometry
Immune system cells have evolved to execute numerous functions that defend the host against pathogens and other threats like tumors. Scientists have worked for decades to identify and measure cellular function and numerous experimental protocols have been developed to this end. In today’s laboratory, flow cytometry has emerged as a precise, rapid, and customizable platform for many state-of-the-art functional assays.
This white paper provides a summary of flow cytometry functional assays currently being used in basic and clinical research settings.
