Validated antibody panels for flow cytometry
Coined in 2010, the term “optimized multicolor immunofluorescence panel”, or OMIP, refers to a thoroughly tested and validated set of antibodies and reagents that can be used together for the multicolor characterization of a specific cell state or response. Published in the journal Cytometry Part A (Wiley Online Library), these OMIPs are designed for flow cytometry, but OMIPs may potentially be defined for image cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and other polychromatic fluorescence–based methods.
