Written by the authors on behalf of ICSH/ICCS Working Group multi-color flow cytometry is a unique technology, which enables the analysis of heterogeneous cellular systems and provides multiparametric information on a cell-by-cell basis.


A variety of factors contribute to the complexity of validating cell-based flow cytometric methods, including the lack of fully characterized cellular reference materials and the difficulty in obtaining, or creating, samples with varying levels of a given cell type or varying levels of expression of a given antigen.


This document summarizes validation requirements and describes validation strategies for quasi-quantitative and qualitative cell-based flow cytometric assays.
