#ALT# Tips for Successful Immunofluorescence in Cultured Cells

Immunostaining is a complex technology and subject to several technical obstacles, which could mean that after a lot of time and effort the result is either no signal or one which is impossible to interpret, instead of a clear and well defined set of images. But even this is not the worst scenario.

Flow cytometry is a popular cell biology laboratory method. It uses a laser for rapid analysis, quantification, and sorting of a suspension of live cells. In a matter of nanoseconds, profiles of the cell population’s properties are acquired, including size and granulation. This is based on the characteristic pattern of light refracted from the cells.

Scientists develop universal FACS-based approach to heterogenous cell sorting, propelling organoid researchA team at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have developed a series of novel fluorescence‐assisted cell sorting (FACS) protocols that enable isolation of neural progenitors, astrocytes, and neurons from virus‐infected cerebral organoids, for downstream multi-omics analysis.
 
 
 Flow Cytometry Techniques used in Medicine and Research
 
Flow Cytometry Techniques used in Medicine and ResearchFluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) and flow cytometry are often used as interchangeable terms. However, FACS is a specialized method of flow cytometry that helps to physically sort a cell mixture into different populations.

Advances in Fluorescence MicroscopyIn fluorescence microscopy, a specimen emits energy when activated by light of a certain wavelength. Some substances such as chlorophyll and some minerals will do this naturally, while others will need the help of other chemical triggers.
