This explanation is followed by a chapter on computerized data storage and analysis, and a chapter describing lasers in more detail, as well as fluorochromes, mirrors, and filters.
Signal analysis has involved use of fluorochromes (15,17), in-channel fluorescent binding (11, 14), light microscopy (12,17), acoustic wave sensors (16), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (18), and surface plasmon-coupled emission (19), among others.
Abramowitz: I expect continued growth in the development of specific fluorochromes for the identification of the asyet untapped multitude of cellular components, both structural and chemical.
Cytogenetic characterization of Donax trunculus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) by means of karyotyping, fluorochrome banding and fluorescent in situ hybridization.
The test described here is independent from these variables because the number of HLA-DR molecules per monocyte is quantified by use of beads conjugated with defined amounts of fluorochromes to calibrate the fluorescence scale of the flow cytometer in terms of numbers of fluorochrome molecules (26, 31).
Cyto-Cal calibration microspheres have five different fluorescence levels in each vial, affording users a full range of intensities calibrated with approximate Mean Equivalent Soluble Fluorochrome values to provide meaningful results from analysis of labeled samples.
2] The Abbott Cell Dyn 4000 combines the optical method with a special reagent that allows for discrimination of nucleated red blood cells (NRBCs) from WBCs by staining NRBC nuclei with a specific fluorochrome dye.
The level of MMP was determined by flow cytometry after staining cells with rhodamine 123 (Rhl23), a cationic lipophilic fluorochrome with a distribution to the mitochondrial matrix that correlates with the MMP (Sureda et al.
Methods to accurately obtain these ratios in microcrustacea have been described in the literature, whereby RNA and DNA can be quantified from cell homogenates through the use of nucleic acid receptive fluorochrome dyes (Wagner et al.
12), with the introduction a fluorochrome label in the reverse primer for subsequent analysis by automated capillary electrophoresis.
A collinear second laser is also available, providing greater versatility in reagent and fluorochrome choices.
5] The CGH technique involves the simultaneous hybridization of genomic test and reference DNAs, each labeled with a different fluorochrome, to normal target metaphase chromosomes.
When there is a difference between expression levels in the RNAs being compared, the fluorescent signal with one fluorochrome is greater or less than that of the other.
