September 4, 2020
Bryant C. Nelson, Lili Wang, Samantha D. Maragh, Paul C. DeRose, Elzafir B. Elsheikh, Wyatt N. Vreeland, Ionita Ghiran, Jennifer Jones
Extracellular vesicles (EVs), and in particular exosomes, have the potential to revolutionize the development and efficient delivery of clinical therapeutics. In this Perspective, we focus on providing a brief introduction to the landscape of exosome-based

An accurate and rapid single step protocol for enumeration of cytokine positive T lymphocytes

September 3, 2020
Deepa Rajagopal, Linhua Tian, Shiqiu Xiong, Lili Wang, Jonathan Campbell, Luisa Saraiva, S Vessillier
Activation of T lymphocytes leads to differentiation, characterized by the ability to induce production of cytokines. Accurate determination of cellular subsets that secrete particular cytokine(s) is therefore, a significant parameter for functional

Workshop 13: Building Measurement Assurance in Flow Cytometry

June 17, 2019
Lili Wang, Stephen Perfetto, Robert Hoffman, John T. Elliott, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Steven Bauer, Heba Degheidy, Judith Arcidiacono, Litwin Virginia
Two workshops were held to identify measurement challenges and potential solutions for building measurement assurance for flow cytometry. This report summarizes key findings, including the need for high quality reagents, reference standards or materials

Workshop 9: Control Cells or Not

June 17, 2019
Paul Wallace, Jonni S. Moore, Derek Jones, Litwin Virginia, Lili Wang, Yanli Liu
"Control Cells or Not" was an educational workshop that used surveys, lectures, and discussions to identify problems and solutions related to using commercially available control cell products and lab-developed approaches. Collective efforts are proposed

Comparison of volumetric and bead-based counting of CD34 cells by single-platform flow cytometry

February 20, 2019
Luisa Saraiva, Lili Wang, Martin Kammel, A. Kummrow, E Atkinson, J Y. Lee, B Yalcinkaya, M Akgoz, A Ruf, A Engel, Yu-Zhong Zhang, O O''Shea, M P. Sassi, C Divieto, T Lekishvili, J J. Campbell, Y Liu, J Wang, R Stebbings, Adolfas Gaigalas, P Rigsby, J Neukammer, S Vessillier
Background: Over 2000 people a year in the UK need a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant. It is important to accurately quantify the haematopoietic stem cells to predict whether the transplant will be successful in replenishing the immune system

Methodology for evaluating and comparing fluorescence measurement capabilities: Multi-site study of 23 flow cytometers

September 23, 2018
David R. Parks, Wayne A. Moore, Ryan Brinkman, Yong Chen, Danilo Condello, Faysal E. Khettabi, John P. Nolan, Stephen P. Perfetto, Doug Redelman, Josef Spidlen, Jonathan V. Dyke, Lili Wang, James C. Wood
We developed measurement methods and analysis procedures to perform inter-instrument comparisons and used them to evaluate and compare the fluorescence measurement capabilities among 23 cytometers in 9 laboratories selected to provide a range of

Quantitative Fluorescence Measurements with Multicolor Flow Cytometry

November 20, 2017
Lili Wang, Adolfas K. Gaigalas, James Wood
Multicolor flow cytometer assays are routinely used in clinical laboratories for immunophenotyping, monitoring disease and treatment, and determining prognostic factors. However, existing methods for quantitative measurements have not yet produced


May 9, 2017
Lili Wang, Robert A. Hoffman
Flow cytometry is a widely used technique for the analysis of single cells and particles. It is an essential tool for immunological research, drug and device development, clinical trials, disease diagnosis, and therapy monitoring. However, the measurements

Standardization, Calibration, and Control in Flow Cytometry

January 6, 2017
Lili Wang, Robert A. Hoffman
Standardization, control, and calibration provide different degrees of certainty about the data acquired with an instrument. Each process is aimed at assuring that results from the instrument have the quality required for the intended purpose. The purpose

Quantitative Flow Cytometry Measurements in Antibody Bound per Cell Based on CD4 Reference

February 12, 2016
Lili Wang, Heba Degheidy, Fatima Abbasi, Howard Mostowski, Gerald Marti, Steven R. Bauer, Robert Hoffman, Adolfas K. Gaigalas
Multicolor flow cytometer assays are with fluorescently labeled antibodies routinely used in clinical laboratories to measure the cell number of specific immunophenotypes and to estimate expression levels of specific receptors/antigens either on the cell
