In this podcast, you will learn about the history of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) and how it was established as a popular tool for neurogenesis research. Gain insight into the latest BrdU-related findings and get five practical tips for controlling your BrdU labeling experiments.
The eukaryotic cell cycle is an evolutionarily conserved process that results in the replication of cells. Read this mini review to better understand the eukaryotic cell cycle and get an overview of common molecular techniques used to evaluate proliferating cells.
In this fourth and final part of the series on assessing the health of your cells, we review the different stages of necroptosis, see how it differs from apoptosis, and learn about the various methods of assessing cellular necroptosis.
Bio-Rad’s new ZE5 Cell Analyzer is a game-changing cell analyzer that was designed with direct input from scientists and flow core labs. Karen Helm runs the flow core facility at the University of Colorado Cancer Center and was one of the experts consulted. See how ZE5 is helping her flow core users do better science.
Macrophages are important players in the phagocytosis process in the immune system. In this detailed review, we provide an overview on the different types of macrophages, the signaling molecules involved in the polarization of M1 and M2 macrophage subsets, and more.
In this multi-part series on assessing the health of your cells, we review different factors to be considered in your assessments such as cell viability, proliferation, apoptosis, and autophagy. The first part covers the methods for assessing viability and proliferation and their advantages, and discusses some common considerations.
To run a core flow cytometry lab is no easy task. There is always a balance between running simple sorts and developing new assays for answering complicated questions that demand pushing the limits of existing assays and the limitations of the sorters. See how Andy Riddell, a flow core manager, pushes the limits of his existing assays and how Bio-Rad’s S3e™ cell sorter is allowing him to accomplish that.
