Cytometric Phenotyping and Other Tools for the Clinicians

Cytometry Part A published ISAC-Cytometry Part A Mentorship Program Special Section: New Developments in Cytometric Phenotyping, Guest Edited by ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholars Kewal Asosingh from Cleveland Clinic, USA, Katarzyna Piwocka from Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Poland, and Frank Schildberg from University Hospital Bonn, Germany. All three Guest Editors are participants of the Cytometry Part A – ISAC Mentorship Program aimed to develop the next generation of Cytometry Part A Associate Editors and members of the Editorial Board.

In this Special Section, Kewal Asosingh, Katarzyna Piwocka, and Frank Schildberg compiled a selection of four articles presenting different developments of cytometric phenotyping technologies, which nicely demonstrate current trends and possibilities. The articles from Basso-Ricci et al. and Smolen et al. both introduce new holistic approaches for whole blood phenotyping assays. The work from Elhmouzi-Younes et al.  represents a reference publication comparing innate myeloid leukocytes from healthy humans and macaques using time-of-flight cytometry (CyTOF) and is a great example of high-end multiparametric phenotypic analysis. The fourth article by Song et al. proposes a general workflow for phenotypic assays based on automated fluorescence microscopy. For more, read their Editorial “New Developments in Cytometric Phenotyping”.

To learn about the latest successes of the ISAC-Cytometry Part A Mentorship program and the updates from this year’s annual conference of the ESCCA in Thessaloniki, Greece, read the Editorial from Attila Tarnok “Cytometry Part A—ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholars and SRL Emerging Leaders Mentorship Program: The next step.

In the following issue of Cytometry Part A, don’t miss the Editorial from Attila Tarnok “Cellular Diagnosis for the clinicians,” which he drafted on his flight from CYTOAsia in Singapore, the first large-scale CYTO conference and education event in Asia.

In this issue, Dr. Tarnok also selected two Editor’s Choice papers:
