Ladies and gentlemen,

Please find enclosed a new paper dealing with Megamix (7801) from BioCytex.

  • Standardization of platelet-derived microparticle enumeration by flow cytometry using calibrated beads: results of International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis SSC collaborative workshop, Lacroix R et al, J Thromb Haemost. 2010, 8: 2571-4.

    This paper is the summary of the work done during the ISTH workshop. It shows that instrument response related to the FS/FSC parameter is highly variable, and depends on the status of an individual instrument,which needs to be recalibrated on a regular basis. This international workshop concluded that Beckman Coulter and Becton Dickinson instruments show different behaviours in attempt to standardize MP counts based on Megamix.
