Application Note: Detection of Platelets in Whole Blood Using the Attune NxT Flow Cytometer
8 August 2017

Platelets are non-nucleated cellular fragments that circulate in the peripheral blood. They derive from megajaryocytes and are critical for maintaining hemostasis. This application note demonstrates the use of the Attune NxT Flow Cytometer, along with the Attune NxT No-Wash and No-Lyse Filter Kit for violet laser SSC detection as a robust assay for the detection of platelets in white blood without sample manipulation.
