Building Antibody Panels

One of the challenges facing investigators wishing to do multi-parameter flow cytometry is how to build panels of compatible reagents that can be used for simultaneous analysis on specific instruments. Our flow cytometry lab is registered with Fluorofinder, an independent web tool for the selection of appropriate reagents for use with specific instruments.

Finding Reagents

Another challenge facing investigators is simply finding the reagents necessary to carry out the appropriate experiments. An excellent resource to get started is the Linscott’s Directory. This is an independent list of available antibody (and other) reagents for a variety of applications, including flow cytometry.
