Analysis of Autofluorescence in Polymorphonuclear Neutrophils: A New Tool for Early Infection Diagnosis by Monsel A et al.
In this study, the authors demonstrates that the average autofluorescence changes of the PolyMorphonuclear Neutrophils (PMNs) during bacterial infections, can serve as a surrogate marker of infection. The autofluorescence is related to NAD(P)H pathway in PMNs.

Congratulations to the authors who have relied on tebu-bio when selecting their discovery tools.

Want to know more about Lympholyte to isolate human Polymorphonuclear Neutrophils?

Lympholyte-poly is a ready-made sterile and endotoxin tested solution which is a mixture of sodium metrizoate and Dextran 500 that allows for the isolation of human polymorphonuclear granulocytes from whole blood.
