Cell Staining for Sorting of Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSC) and Myeloid Progenitors The combination of prospective identification/isolation of bone marrow progenitors and quantitative RT-PCR is a powerful tool to understand the molecular mechanism underlying hematopoiesis. Describes the standard procedures of the murine myeloid progenitor staining for fluorescence activated cells sorting (FACS) and RNA purification methods.
FAQs About Cell Sorting Questions and answers about cell sorting. Includes: When should I use fluorescence activated cell sorting over bulk separation methods like panning or magnetic bead separations? Will my cells be harmed by the sorting process? How many cells do I need to prepare to recover 1 X 106 of a population that comprises 10% of the cells? Are there ways to improve sort recovery? etc...
Flow Cytometry Analysis Protocol Flow cytometry is a widely used method for characterizing and separating individual cells. This basic protocol focuses on: measure fluorescence intensity produced by fluorescent-labled antibodies and ligands that bind specific cell-associated molecules. Includes: Immunofluorescence Staining and Flow Cytometry Analysis.
Maintenance of the AutoMACS Cell Sorter Protocol This protocol has been established to maintain the efficient use of the AutoMACS cell sorter during periods of heavy use (e.g., three preparations of splenocytes from 16 spleens per week). Includes: Running the SAFE Clean Program; Clearing Debris.
