The study of rare-cell populations is assuming growing importance in the advancement of medical diagnostics and therapeutics, providing valuable information on the status of a patient. It is useful not only in understanding disease mechanisms, but also in finding novel biomarkers in disease onset and progression.

With multi-parameter capabilities and a very high analysis rate, flow cytometry is currently the most effective technology to address rare-cell analysis.

This invaluable handbook written by experts in the field guides you in the main aspects of rare cell detection with guidance on:

  • Experimental planning—quantity of biological material required
  • Statistical considerations—a crucial step in analysing rare cells
  • Cell enrichment and marker(s) definition strategy—unambiguously identify a rare cell population
  • Sample concentration and flow rate—critical parameters in acquisition time
  • Understanding data analysis—expert use of software and hardware
