Multicolor flow cytometry training at the BD European training centre in Belgium

The Cytohub

Multicolor flow cytometry experiments are tricky to perform – but not if one is trained by experts. The best practices for multicolour experiment design must be learned well for successful experimentation. So, what do you do if you are familiar with flow cytometry and the BD FACSDiva™ software, and wish to learn how to work […]

Automated well gating and much more – The IndexSort Plugin

The Cytohub

The IndexSort plugin was designed to give researchers the ability to automatically gate wells from .fcs data generated using the BD FACSAriaIII™, the BD FACSAria Fusion™, the BD FACSMelody™, the BD Influx™ System™, and the BD FACSymphony™ S6 cell sorters. It automatically identifies the cell sorter, generates parameters corresponding to the X and Y axes […]

High-dimensional single cell analysis identifies stem-like cytotoxic CD8+ T cells infiltrating human tumors

The Cytohub

It is well known that CD8+ T cells infiltrating tumors are largely dysfunctional, but do a subset of them retain functionality? To find an answer, researchers from Dr Enrico Lugli’s Lab at the Humanitas Institute, Milan, analyzed CD8+ T cells from 53 lung cancer patients using high-dimensional flow cytometry. Dr.Lugli and his team were able […]

A standardized flow cytometry network study for the assessment of circulating endothelial cell physiological ranges

The Cytohub

Standardization has become an essential requirement in flow cytometry analysis. In this publication, a highly standardized protocol – based on LyotubeTM reagents and application settings – has been applied to a multicentre study for the evaluation of Circulating Endothelial Cells (CECs). Under physiological conditions, CECs are among the rarest populations of cells present in peripheral […]

Podcast: the many colors of tumor-specific T cells, Pia Kvistborg, Netherlands Cancer Institute

The Cytohub

It is well established that T-cell based immunotherapy can be very effective in treating cancers. Neo-antigens, which are epitopes that come about because of tumor-specific mutations caused by DNA damage are attractive targets for the immune system because central tolerance is lacking due to the tumor-restrictive nature. To study this, the group of Pia Kvistborg, […]
