#ALT# Overcoming Challenges when Designing a Multicolor Flow Cytometry Panel

Flow cytometry is a platform with the power to carry out the identification and characterization of multiple antigens at one time. At the same time, it must be noted that when more antigens and fluorochromes are employed, the experimental design becomes much more complex. To deal with this task, it is useful to consider the following five steps.
