Immunophenotyping with time-resolved flow cytometry

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….
