Re: [Histonet] Demonstration of antigen on cell surface - question?

From:GT Hebert

I know a group that uses confocal but do not know it very well myself.  Can you give me a more detailed explanation of why confocal would be useful ... and suggestion for cell surface markers that can be used?
Thank you very much.
