3 Ways To Measure Cell Death With Flow Cytometry

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Cell death is a natural part of the lifecycle of a cell. In cases of development, it is critical for the shaping of fingers during human development. The processes of ordered cell death, or Apoptosis,...

5 Essential Controls For Reproducible Fluorescent Microscopy Imaging

Written By: Heather Brown Harding, PhD Fluorescent imaging has the potential to bring great insights into your research project. But, there is a lot of room for error. And one of the most common and completely preventable errors that many...

3 Action Steps You Can Take Right Now To Improve Your Flow Cytometry Reproducibility

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Reproducibility is a key issue in science. Massive amounts of time and money are wasted when the results of experiments are not reproducible. For example, I was called into a lab to look at their...

Microscopy – 5 Reasons Coverslips Are Important For High-Quality Imaging

Written By: Heather Brown-Harding, PhD Most people are familiar with coverslips being placed on slides to protect the sample, but that's not the only reasons that coverslips are important. They also affect the image quality. Coverslips function by working with...

3 Considerations To Ensure Your Cell Sorting Flow Cytometry Experiments Run Smoothly

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Cell sorting is such an important technique because it's a gateway tool for many other downstream applications. Assays such as culturing cells, genomic analysis, proteomics, injections into mice and the like are enabled by cell...

3 Questions You Should Be Asking About Flow Cytometry Controls For Your Experiments

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD What are the controls that you should be considering when planning and designing your flow cytometry experiments? Are you using isotype controls? Should you be? Isotype controls are one of the controls used in flow...

3 Ways To Improve Flow Cytometry Troubleshooting

Written by: Tim Bushnell, PhD Flow cytometry troubleshooting is a regular part of my job. I spend a lot of time working with my colleagues and clients retrospectively troubleshooting their data. This involves trying to understand and explain what might've...

Using Begley’s Rules To Improve Reproducibility In Flow Cytometry

Written By: Tim Bushnell, PhD Isaac Newton was famous for saying “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” Implicit in that statement is that the information that the giants provided was...

From Purity To Biosafety, Understanding The Cell Sorting Process

Written by Tim Bushnell, PhD The Power Of Flow Cytometry In Cell Sorting   Often, cell sorting is described as trying to find a needle in a haystack. In 2008, David Brown wrote an article on cell sorting for the...
