Methods in Cell Biology: Flow Cytometry v.42
This is the second of a two volume set that provides a laboratory guide and reference on methods in flow cytometry sample preparation and analysis. The theoretical foundations, critical aspects and possible pitfalls of each procedure is outlined, and protocols are supplemented with explanatory sections and trouble-shooting tips. Various cell systems are described and ten methods cover assessment of apoptosis and other modes of cell death. The methods detailed should be accessible to researchers and students in biomedical science and biology who use flow cytometry to separate and analyze cells.
