Description: Flow cytometry is a fluorescence-based approach that evaluates cells based on protein expression, among many other cellular features. This project will involve testing a specialty time-resolved flow cytometer to determine how it can improve routine immunophenotyping protocols. Routine protocols involve taking white blood cells, labeling with fluorescent antibodies, and counting with a flow cytometer….

Description: Flow cytometers and fluorescence activated cell sorters (FACS) are instruments used for biomedical research as well as to understand a wide range of biophysical and biomaterial engineering problems. The types of cytometry instruments currently marketed are quite vast and range from imaging cytometers, simple cell counters, multi-color cell sorters, to full-spectral flow cytometry instruments….
