How to Find the Offspring of a Single T Cell (image) Technische Universitaet Muenchen Share Print E-Mail Caption The ex vivo analysis of complex immune responses relies on identifying molecules that are characteristic for certain cell types. The expression of multiple molecules can be analyzed in parallel, creating complex multidimensional data sets. These are generally analyzed using a set of two-dimensional data plots that derive from one another in a hierarchy. The detection of progeny cells derived from an individual ancestral T cell becomes possible through a combination of high-precision detection technology with analysis of very large biological samples: Plots displayed here contain multimensional information from more than 20,000,000 leukocytes.
