Comparison of the immunocytochemical stain using the anti-MPO antibody with the routine cytochemical methodology showed that the former was more sensitive. In all subtypes of acute myeloid(More)
This paper describes a case study of using Cultural Probes in an early stage of a 'research-through-design' project aiming at innovations in social media.

TdT (terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase) can be detected by radio enzymatic assay, biochemical assay in cell extracts, serum or plasma, and intracellularly in the smear by indirect immunofluorescent methods. The IgG fraction of anti-TdT serum is conjugated with fluoresceinisothiocyanate and used directly on the cytospin smears of methanol fixed bone(More)
