Designing a successful flow experiment – selecting compatible reagents and optimizing your protocol – can be challenging and time-consuming. And yet, as we all know, a well-designed experiment is critical to the collection of high-quality flow data.
What do we think about when designing flow experiments?
- What buffers should I use when probing intracellular targets?
- Which surface antibodies work well on my sample and with my buffers?
- What is the best concentration for my antibody?
- Are there alternative protocols that work better with my samples?
We are excited to announce the arrival of two resources that will help you answer those questions and streamline your reagent selection process. BD Biosciences has released the FACSelect™ series, consisting of a Multicolor Panel Designer and a Buffer Compatibility Resource.
We’re excited to announce Cytobank Reports, a new feature on Cytobank that will soon enable users to “publish” their data and findings. We’re also excited to announce that the first Cytobank Report (available here) features the mass cytometry study published today in Science, reporting on the simultaneous measurement of 34 parameters in single hematopoietic cells.
Also, more details to come, but stay tuned for a new resource from BD Biosciences powered by Cytobank Reports. (If you’re attending IMMUNOLOGY 2011 or CYTO 2011 this month, stop by our booth to preview this resource!)
