The Role of Flow Cytometry in Infectious Diseases
Flow cytometry is a technique to detect and characterise cells with multi-parameter and high throughput analysis. Within a 2 hour period, cell subgroups and functions of a given cell population (i.e blood, bone marrow, broncho-alveolar lavage) can be determined in detail. Short measurement times and the possibility of distinguishing different cell characteristics within such specified cell populations make flow cytometry one of the most indispensable methods for immune system research including host response to the microorganism which causes the infection, drug response used in the treatment, and even vaccine responses. Here, as Koç University Research Center for Translational Medicine Flow Cytometry Core Facility, we are very happy to contribute to both scientific and clinical high-impact projects related to infectious diseases in collaboration with KUISCID.
