A model for harmonizing flow cytometry in clinical trials

Nat Immunol. 2010 Nov;11(11):975-8. doi: 10.1038/ni1110-975.


Complexities in sample handling, instrument setup and data analysis are barriers to the effective use of flow cytometry to monitor immunological parameters in clinical trials. The novel use of a central laboratory may help mitigate these issues.
