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...

4 Ways To Analyze Tissues By Flow Cytometry

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Why are we interested in cytometry? What are its practical applications? Let’s start by defining cytometry as the measurement of cellular processes at the whole-cell level. This definition is useful because it includes not only...

Ask These 7 Questions Before Purchasing A Flow Cytometer

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Using funds to make a capital purchase can be an exciting time in a facility. If you don’t have the funds in hand, planning for future purchases requires due diligence to make sure the investment...

6 Microscopy Assays To Determine Cell Health and Improve Your Experimental Results

Written By: Heather Brown-Harding, PhD When you're performing imaging, we always want to make sure that any phenotype we see isn't just an artifact of unhealthy cells or if you're doing drug discovery, you want to ensure that the treatment...

7 Things You Didn’t Know About Imaging Cytometry

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD We are visual creatures. We seek to capture and describe the world around us. Some of the earliest evidence of this is found in the cave paintings that have been found around the world, like...

4 Steps To Implementing a QC Program For Your Flow Cytometry Experiments

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD With the emphasis on reproducibility in science, it is important to look at the process of quality control and quality assurance and how these can help improve the reproducibility of data. First, what is the...
