Application protocol

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of dendritic cells from mouse spleen

This application protocol describes the flow cytometric analysis of dendritic cells (DCs) after spleen dissociation from healthy C57BL/6 mice. Viable single cells from mouse spleens are easily obtained using the gentleMACS™ Technology. For downstream flow cytometric analysis of DCs, we have designed a validated multicolor flow cytometry panel, using our REAfinity™ Recombinant Antibodies and Viobility™ Fixable Dyes. In addition, we provide an optimized gating strategy for the analysis of major DC populations, such as conventional and plasmacytoid DCs.
