28‐color flow cytometry panel to characterize B cells and myeloid cells

Thomas Liechti, Mario Roederer Cytometry PART A, Volume 95, Issue 2, 105-155 (2019)

PURPOSE: This 28‐color flow cytometry panel focuses on B cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes and was optimized for cryopreserved peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). In addition to markers enabling the analysis of monocytes (CD14) and definition of subsets within B cells (CD10, CD19, CD20, CD21, CD27, IgD, IgM) and dendritic cells (CD1c, CD11c, CD123, CD141, HLA‐DR), we included functional markers such as chemokine receptors (CXCR3, CXCR5), surface immunoglobulins (IgA, IgD, IgG, IgM), Fc receptors (CD16, CD23, CD32, CD64), inhibitory molecules (CD73, CD85j), the co‐stimulatory molecule CD40, and cytokine receptors (IL‐21R, BAFF‐R, TACI), which enables in‐depth characterization of B cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes.
