[Histonet] Biochemical test for monocyte/macrophage in tissue homogenate
In relation to the following post I am
interested to know if there is any test
that can measure monocyte/macrophage in
homogenized tissue. I am not talking about
cytochemistry/histochemistry method where
the tissue section or specimen is on a
slide. I need a biochemical method (like
colorimetry) (in addition to IHC) to have a
measure of macrophage infiltration in tissue.
For this purpose I want to test tissue homogenate.
Thanks in advance

Have you thought of cytochemistry?
Chloroacetate esterase and naphthyl acetate esterase are two enzymatic
assays that will easily and cheaply differentiate the mentioned cell
