WEBINAR: Flow Cytometric Assessment, Quantification and Regulation of Human Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETS)

At the CYTO 2017 meeting Dr. Adriano Rossi and Dr. Calum Robb from the University of Edinburgh described the development of a new flow cytometry-based assay for studying NETosis, a cell death process that occurs when stimulated neutrophils cast an extracellular web containing DNA, histones, and anti-bacterial proteins that ensnare/neutralize invading organisms. Using the NovoCyte® flow cytometer, they demonstrate the detection and quantification of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), as well as analysis of the regulatory mechanisms involved.
