EMT6 is an epithelial tumor of the mammary glands of BALB/cCrgl Mus musculus. This tumor has produced an adherent cell that requires storage in liquid nitrogen. EMT6 has been used in mice to study the antitumor potential of Cutibacterium (Propionibacterium) acnes, the bacteria responsible for acne in humans, and melatonin.
Tumor studies performed in mice are helping the medical community learn better ways to diagnose and treat cancer in humans. One of the most virulent tumors is the 4T1 tumor, a mouse tumor of the mammary gland.
As a contract flow lab, FCSL frequently runs immunophenotyping assays for clients, though it is just one of the flow cytometry services we offer. CD Markers are commonly used in immunophenotyping to identify cells based on what molecules are present on the surface of each cell.
More women are working outside of the home than ever. While women make up 47% of all US jobs, they only make up a small percentage of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) jobs. However, this is not because fewer women possess a college education; a little more than half of college educated workers […]
The quality of water has serious effects on humans. We don’t go out into the forest and drink from steams for fear of bacteria from a host of sources. Drinking bad water can make someone violently ill; we boil it, filter it, treat it with ozone, and subject it to UV radiation to make it […]
Flow Contract Site Laboratory now has TWO 10 color cytometers! They have been validated and are now in use in our laboratory. Our previous max color cytometer was up to 8 colors, meaning now we can analyze cells with two more markers. These 10 color cytometers allow for more complex antibody panel design and can […]
