- Prepare microfluidic channel with anti-CD4+ biotinlayted surface.
- Inject 10 ml of sample blood at 5 ml/min into the microfluidic channel with syringe pump.
- Flush out the blood at 20 ml/min for 20 min with PBS.
- Inject diluted FACS lysing solution (diluted to 10% from stock solution with PBS) at 5ul/min for 15 min.
- Incubate for 15 min.
- Inject primary CD3+ antibody solution (diluted to 10% from stock solution with PBS) at 5 ml/min for 20 min.
- Incubate for 2 hours.
- Flush out channel with PBS at 5 ml/min for 15 min.
- Inject 20% AF488 CD4+ antibody, 0.2% DAPI stock solution, and 10% secondary CD3+ antibody at 5 ml/min for 20 min at the same time.
- Incubate for 20 min.
- Flush out the channel with PBS at 5 ml/min for 15 min.
- Count cells under fluorescent microscope:
- White (optical) - Black and white: cell and dust
- UV(DAPI) - Blue: cell only
- Blue(CD4+) - Green: T-lymphocyte and monocyte
- Green(CD3+) - Red: T-lymphocyte only
