Hi Max,

we use FITC-labelled BSA and/or FITC-labelled manosilated BSA. Both work
fine and differences in the flow cytometer are very clear. When you are
interested send me a mail and I can send you the protocol.

Kind regards,

Hello Flowers,

I am searching for a method to determine the amount of antigen which has
uptaken by DCs. We used FITC labeled FAB-Fragments to simulate the uptake of
protein and could found them inside the DC by confocal microscopy. I am now
looking for a quantitive method, maybe something which could be measured by

Thank you
