Flow Citometry

Through the flow cytometry technique the laboratory performs testing such as quantification lymphocyte subpopulations of HIV patients, progenitor stem cells quantification for allogeneic or autologous transplant, platelet syndromes determination, peripheral blood subpopulation quantification, and other methodologies. This technique allows the measurement of the chemical and physical characteristics in particles or in cells in suspension. The laboratory also supports researches performed on mesenchymal, endothelial, and dendritic cells. In order to follow the technological advances, the Hemocentro has recently bought the Flow Cytometer, which is able to perform the "cell sorter" (separation of subpopulation), to perform simultaneous analyses on seven different fluorescence, and so forth.
