Various permeabilization and fixation methods are available to allow access of antibodies to intracellular proteins. Fixing cells will retain the target protein in its original cellular location, and will usually ensure better stability of soluble antigens and antigens with a short half-life. Use this guide to help decide which method is optimal for your experiment.

There are many fluorescent molecules, also known as fluorochromes, fluorophores, or fluorescent dyes, with a potential application in flow cytometry. By conjugating (pre-attaching) them to primary antibodies, we can create conjugated antibodies that allow for flow cytometry analysis. Use this guide to learn how to choose the right fluorescent labels for your FACS experiment.

To optimize your flow experiment, additional in vitro cell stimulation may be required to trigger increased production of intracellular cytokines. Some common reagents for this purpose include PMA, Ca++ or peptide epitopes and protein transport inhibitor, Brefeldin A, and more. Use this guide to learn the optimal method for stimulating your cell samples before flow cytometric analysis.
Keywords: optimize in vitro cell stimulation, increase intracellular cytokine response
The antibody staining procedure includes many steps, such as antibody titration, washing, blocking, and more. The optimal antibody concentration, which gives the best staining with minimum background, must be determined experimentally. Use this guide for tips on how to optimize the steps of your antibody staining protocol.
