This thoroughly revised and updated edition of a widely used practical guide to flow cytometry describes in step-by-step detail an array of time proven and cutting-edge techniques much needed in today's advanced laboratories. These readily reproducible methods deploy emerging flow cytometry technologies in many new applications, especially in the field of stem cells, functional genomics and proteomics, and microbiology. Here, the aspiring investigator will find methods for the characterization of stem/progenitor cells by monitoring the efflux of fluorescent dyes and the elucidation of signal transduction pathways using phospho-specific antibodies. There are also techniques for monitoring gene transfer and expression using fluorescent protein technology, high throughput screening for discovery of novel protein interactions, phenotypic and functional characterization of T cell subsets and precursors, and microbial flow cytometry, to highlight but some of the many useful procedures.
A Case-Based Approach
Author: Sindhu Cherian,Brent Wood
Flow Cytometry in Evaluation of Hematopoietic Neoplasms: A Case-Based Approach is a practical, case-based guide to flow cytometric analysis in the workup of hematopoietic neoplasms presenting in the peripheral blood, marrow, lymphoid tissue, and extranodal sites. Using multi-color techniques pioneered by Brent Wood, the text demonstrates a unique approach to diagnosis of hematopoietic malignancies as well as identification of small abnormal populations in the posttherapy setting (minimal residual disease testing). The publication contains an introduction to immunophenotypic changes seen in normal hematopoiesis along with an overview of the evaluation of lymphomas, leukemias, and myeloid stem- cell neoplasms. These concepts are further illustrated by a series of 36 cases, each dedicated to a specific disease entity. Each case provides detailed, full-color images of flow cytometric dot plots that clearly outline the features of the disease, accompanied by a clinical history and thorough discussion, enabling readers to develop and work through a differential diagnosis and recognize potential diagnostic pitfalls. Take-home points for each case emphasize critical concepts in flow cytometric diagnosis. Flow Cytometry in Evaluation of Hematopoietic Neoplasms provides pathologists, residents, laboratory technologists, and hematologists with both a study guide and an atlas for regular consultation in the clinical flow cytometry laboratory. The 2008 World Health Organization (WHO) classification system, French-American-British (FAB) classifications, and 2006 Bethesda Consensus recommendations are incorporated in the text.

The images included allow you to compare your own results with a third party reference pattern. There is a detailed description of the main leukocyte antigens, together with a description of their distribution amongst normal and abnormal blood cells. The book also provides a comprehensive description of the phenotype of every neoplastic blood disease recorded in the WHO classification system, including all the instructions needed to recognise and classify even the least common entity. Designed to be practical, the book is perfect for quick consultation and is divided into two main sections. Section I deals with the direct object of immunophenotyping, and Section II deals with the ultimate target of the analysis. More than 50 antigens are covered and every antigen is dealt with in three main parts: general features, cytometric features and practical hints. This authoritative and state–of–the–art reference will be invaluable for clinicians directly involved in the diagnosis and analysis of hematological diseases, including hematologists, hematopathologists, oncologists, pathologists and technicians working in diagnostic laboratories.

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.

Recent advances in array-based detectors and imaging technologies have provided high throughput systems that can operate within a substantially reduced timeframe and other techniques that can detect multiple contaminants at one time. These technologies are revolutionary in terms of food safety assessment in manufacturing, and will also have a significant impact on areas such as public health and food defence. This book summarizes the latest research and applications of sensor technologies for online and high throughput screening of food. The book first introduces high throughput screening strategies and technology platforms, and discusses key issues in sample collection and preparation. The subsequent chapters are then grouped into four sections: Part I reviews biorecognition techniques; Part II covers the use of optical biosensors and hyperspectral imaging in food safety assessment; Part III focuses on electrochemical and mass-based transducers; and finally Part IV deals with the application of these safety assessment technologies in specific food products, including meat and poultry, seafood, fruits and vegetables. Summarises the latest research on sensor technologies for online and high-throughput screening of food Covers high-throughput screening and the current and forecast state of rapid contaminant detection technologies Looks at the use of optical and electrochemical biosensors and hyperspectral imaging in food safety assessment and the application of these technologies in specific food products
