There are a variety of challenges when studying rare cell types, primarily due to their very low abundance against a high background of other cells. Identifying ways to study these cell types and better understand their roles in different human diseases is important to advance basic biomedical research—especially elucidating and characterizing disease mechanisms and targets—as well as in medical diagnostics and therapeutics. With multiparameter capabilities and a very high analysis rate, flow cytometry is one of the technologies often utilized to analyze rare cells. During this webinar, the application of this technology to the isolation and analysis of rare cells will be discussed, with a focus on innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), circulating antigen-specific lymphocytes, and innate-like cells (such as natural killer T cells and circulating endothelial cells).
During this webinar viewers will be able to ask questions of the panelists and will learn about:
- Advances in flow cytometry technologies that further enhance the capabilities for rare cell analysis
- Studies utilizing multiparameter flow cytometry on human ILCs to interrogate their characteristics and immune function
- How flow cytometry can be used to characterize the polyfunctionality of these very rare cells, and to investigate the role of such elements in diseases like multiple sclerosis.
