Sample fixation is an important issue in flow cytometric platelet assays. However, previous reports were less than consistent regarding the influence of sample fixation on the assays. We evaluated the effects of formaldehyde and paraformaldehyde fixation on platelet P-selectin expression and fibrinogen binding using whole-blood flow cytometry and a Coulter… CONTINUE READING
