Techniques made simple Flow Cytometry

  title={Techniques made simple Flow Cytometry},
  author={Richard Reza Jahan-Tigh and C Ryan and Gerlinde Obermoser and Kathryn Schwarzenberger},
Of the techniques available to both the clinician and the researcher, few are as widely employed as flow cytometry. With applications that range from common clinical laboratory tests, such as complete blood count with differential and monitoring of CD4 cell count in HIV patients, to advanced, multicolor flow cytometry used to identify subtypes of inflammatory cells active in diseases such as psoriasis and lupus, flow cytometry has become rapid, flexible, and sensitive.

A model for harmonizing flow cytometry in clinical trials
The novel use of a central laboratory may help mitigate issues in sample handling, instrument setup and data analysis and the effective use of flow cytometry to monitor immunological parameters in clinical trials.
Interpreting flow cytometry data: a guide for the perplexed
This research presents a meta-modelling architecture that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of manually cataloging and analyzing flow cytometry data.
Single-Cell Mass Cytometry of Differential Immune and Drug Responses Across a Human Hematopoietic Continuum
Single-cell “mass cytometry” analyses provide system-wide views of immune signaling in healthy human hematopoiesis, against which drug action and disease can be compared for mechanistic studies and pharmacologic intervention.
Minimal information about T cell assays: the process of reaching the community of T cell immunologists in cancer and beyond
The approach taken in the Minimal Information About T Cell Assays (MIATA) project can be generically applied to projects in which a broad consensus has to be reached among scientists working in fragmented fields, such as immunology.
Extracting a Cellular Hierarchy from High-dimensional Cytometry Data with SPADE
This work presents a versatile computational approach, spanning-tree progression analysis of density-normalized events (SPADE), which facilitates the analysis of cellular heterogeneity, the identification of cell types and comparison of functional markers in response to perturbations.
Mapping normal and cancer cell signalling networks: towards single-cell proteomics
This form of 'single-cell proteomics' can identify pathways that are activated in therapy-resistant cells and can provide biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and for determining patient prognosis.
Spectral compensation for flow cytometry: visualization artifacts, limitations, and caveats.
There are inescapable errors arising from imperfect measurements, photon-counting statistics, and even data storage methods that contribute both linearly and nonlinearly to a "spreading" of a properly compensated autofluorescence distribution.
Vdelta1 and Vdelta2 gammadelta T cells express distinct surface markers and might be developmentally distinct lineages.
The disruption of the supply of normal, thymus-derived T cells in HIV-infected individuals might be responsible for the shift in the Vdelta2/Vdelta1 ratio that occurs in the blood of individuals with HIV disease.
Circulating Th17, Th22, and Th1 cells are increased in psoriasis.
Elevated numbers of circulating inflammatory T cells may contribute to cutaneous inflammation and systemic inflammatory disease that occurs in individuals with psoriasis.
Regulation of T-plastin expression by promoter hypomethylation in primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
These findings demonstrate PLS3 expression in the majority of SS patients and provide insight into the molecular regulation of PLS1 expression in CTCL, and demonstrate heterogeneity in PLS2 expression in tumor cell populations.
