[Cytometry] Human vs Mouse markers (xenografted cells)

Hi there,

  I have had an inquiry from one of the researchers who utilize the flow 
facility.  We haven't run any samples from xenograft studies (that I can 
recall), therefore I was wondering if someone could help me answer their 
question.  Basically, how to ID and separate human vs mouse cells in the 
case of xenograft. 

Their inquiry:

"I have sets of cells that are derived from breast cancer tumors grown 
in a mouse, and would like to verify that my culture is ONLY the human 
injected cells from the tumor and that I do not have any mouse stromal 
cells that have survived my antibiotic and drug selection methods."

Any help is greatly appreciated!
