eBook: Ebb and Flow: Investigating the Immune Response using Advanced Flow Cytometry
The sequence of events during an immune attack includes the initial antigen recognition, which triggers a non-specific acute response, followed by a more targeted adaptive immune response that builds immune memory. The resulting signaling cascades involve activation of many diverse types of immune cells, such as macrophages, natural killer cells, and T lymphocytes, in addition to signaling proteins like cytokines and chemokines.
This eBook describes some of the challenges that researches face when characterizing the immune response, and how advanced flow cytometry solutions are helping scientists quantify, profile, and characterize immune cells faster.
