Flashcards in Flow Questions Deck (20):
What are the three applications of cytometry?
Diagnosis and subclassifications of leukemias and lymphomas. (2) Detection on minimal residual disease before relapse (3) additional info in challenging cases
Brief flow definition.
Fluorescent Monoclonal antibodies to antigens expressed at specific stages of normal hematopoietic maturation. Single file and shot at with laser and then detected.
Define hydrodynamic focusing
makes flow cytometer more accurate for determining size
selection of a certain population
Define data acquisition gating
Comprehensive analysis of all cells, internal positive and negative controls, detection of unexpected abnormal populations
Define live gating
Selection of a certain cell population
The size of a cell
The complexity of the cytoplasm
Look at normal flow scatter
