1654 Isolation of Alveolar Type Ii Cells with a Laser Flow Cytometer


Isolation of relatively pure populations of alveolar type II epithelial cells has previously only been possible by density gradient centrifugation techniques which exploit the low buoyant density conferred on such cells by lung surfactant containing lamellar bodies. We have used a multiparameter laser flow cytometer (cell sorter) to obtain similar… (More)
