Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, 2000 - Medical - 355 pages
Flow cytometric analysis of molecular, biochemical, genetic and developmental parameters using cellular fluorescence techniques as well as fluorescence-activated (FACS) or magnetic (MACS) cell sorting technologies provide unique options for molecular and cellular biology. In recent years, these technologies have been considerably advanced.
In this second edition, all chapters have been updated according to the recent improvements and modifications. Further, new protocols have been added, such as on magnetic selection, magnetofluorescent liposomes, the cytometry of secreted products and microbead assays, as well as reporter gene assays for cytometry and cell selection. The recent technical developments allow diagnostic differentiation of cells according to specific gene expression, identification of rare disease-associated cells and isolation of well-defined cells at high purity for cell therapies. In basic research, analysis and isolation of cells according to the correlated expression of up to 10 gene products, expressed within, on or around the cell have become possible.
From the reviews of the 1st edition:
"This is a most useful volume which will be a welcome addition for personal use and also for laboratories in a wide range of disciplines. Highly recommended and well worth purchasing." (Cytobios, GB)
"Full practical details and useful hints are given. This book will prove to be very useful in the lab." (Comp Biochem Physiol A, GB)
"..the book provides a good overview of many of the uses of flow cytometry and would certainly be a good starting point for any of the topics covered. It is easy to read and as such would provide a good introduction to newcomers to flow cytometry." (Austr J Med Science)
