5-Point Guide To Buying A New Microscope For Your Lab

Written By: Heather Brown-Harding, PhD Have you ever noticed how painful it can be to purchase a new microscope? It would be hard to miss – this can be a frustrating process. A lot of scientists and students consider the...

5 Techniques For Dramatic Improvements In Reproducibility

Written By: Heather Brown-Harding, PhD It's not easy to improve reproducibility in your experiments. Image manipulation has become a major problem in science, whether intentional or accidental. This has exploded with the advent of digital imaging and software like Photoshop....

3 Compensation Mistakes That Will Ruin Your Flow Cytometry Experiments

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Putting it basically, compensation is the mathematical process of correcting spectral spillover from a fluorochrome into a secondary detector. Yet even the most talented rookie researchers may find themselves at a loss when it comes...

7 Individual Artifacts In Fluorescence Microscopy And How To Minimize Them

Written By: Heather-Brown Harding, PhD There are 7 different “artifacts” that may be affecting the quality of your imaging. Before digging into the details, let’s begin by defining an artifact: Essentially, it is any error introduced through sample preparation, the...

We Tested 5 Major Flow Cytometry SPADE Programs for Speed – Here Are The Results

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD As a follow-up to our post on tSNE where we compared the speed of calculation in leading software packages, let’s consider the case of SPADE (Spanning-tree Progression Analysis of Density-normalized Events). A favored algorithm in...

Mass Cytometry Revolves Around These 5 Things

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Today’s article will summarize the functionality of mass cytometry technology. This tech has been commercialized largely by Fluidigm in the CyTof systems. There are 5 key points to cover, or takeaways, that cytometrists should keep...

Use These 5 Techniques for Super Resolution

Written By: Heather Brown-Harding, PhD When you need better resolution than what can be achieved using a traditional microscope, it can be very intimidating to figure out which microscopes will work best for your experiment. Super-resolution imaging methods require software...

Understanding Reproducibility in Flow Cytometry – It’s the Antibodies!

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Reproducibility is key to the scientific method. After the results of a study are published, the community validates the findings and extends them. If the findings are not reproducible, the second step is impossible. With...

3 Components Of Every Flow Cytometer You Don’t Know Enough About

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD All flow cytometer instruments have a certain 3 components you likely don’t know enough about. The way they are put together will dictate the performance of the system. As a user, you’ll be interacting heavily...
