The flow cytometer is a device that separates the cells by size and granulosity, marking membrane, cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins, using specific fluorophores. In the present project, the flow cytometry will be used for quantification of cell death and oxidative stress, expression of adhesion molecules, Annexin A1, TSPO, besides the secretion of cytokines by the use of CBAs kits. For its wide range of employment, as the diversity of cell types and proteins that can be analyzed, the flow cytometer will be employed by other researchers of FCF-USP and / or other units of USP, which have research project in hematology, neoplasms, immunology and genotoxicology, parasitology, among others.
