FLOW CYTOMETRY PRINCIPLES FOR CLINICAL LABORATORY PRACTICE<br> <br> Quality Assurance for Quantitative Immunophenotyping<br> <br> Marilyn A. Owens and Michael R. Loken<br> <br> Flow Cytometry Principles for Clinical Laboratory Practice is an invaluable benchtop reference and introduction for first-time users of flow cytometry in clinical diagnostic laboratories. This manual provides authoritative coverage of accepted methods, quality controls, and standards for the cytometric analysis of clinical samples with particular relevance to CD4+ lymphocytes. CD4+ lymphocyte determination by immunophenotyping is the standard method for evaluating the status of HIV infection, and the single most frequent application of flow cytometry in a diagnostic setting.<br> <br> Flow Cytometry Principles for Clinical Laboratory Practice will appeal to clinical laboratory technologists, medical practitioners, and cytometry lab directors in their role as instructors of new personnel. In addition, it is a valuable resource for clinical and biomedical researchers, establishing quantitative cytometric systems for studies in immunology and hematology.
