Editor’s Choice: Universal cell type identifier based on number theory
The June issue of Cytometry Part A: Journal of Quantitative Cell Science is now available!
Antonio Cosma proposes a classification based on prime numbers and the fundamental theorem of arithmetic and applies this method to define any existing cell type using the CD nomenclature. This system allows for the unique identification of any cell population and can be used for the development of databases and ontology systems dealing with cell types.
OMIP‐047: High‐Dimensional phenotypic characterization of B cells
This new 16-color, 18-parameter panel allows the accurate definition of common B cell subsets with phenotypic markers (chemokine receptors, cytokine receptor, B cell receptor isotypes, and proliferation marker) for a functional investigation in peripheral blood mononuclear cells in healthy donors and in the context of chronic viral diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 (HIV-1) infection ( by Liechti et al.
Commentary: Microfluidic FACS becoming real
Miniaturizing fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) have been undertaken to limit cost and time, and to increase safety of the experiments. The aerosol induced during sorting also triggers biosafety concerns. New technologies like microfluidics and cell sorting by specific physical properties allowed the miniaturization of FACS experiments. Chengxun Liu
