[Cytometry] Eosinophils auto-florescence

Hi Robert

They are pretty autofluorescent but we've found that eosinophils are fairly easy to identify by SiglecF+ F4/80int CD11bint SSC-hi. If you plot SSC vs SiglecF (in our case on PE) they're fairly clear. We were looking at them in murine peritoneal lavages.

Good luck.

While analyzing eosinophils for surface markers I have found these cells are

so auto-florescent

Any one who have worked with eousinophils; what is the experience and how do

I go about this situation
