Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flow cytometry is a well-established and user-friendly single-cell technology that simultaneously measures multiple analyte expression patterns in individual cells. Since its development in the 1960s, it has enabled important analytical and clinical breakthroughs in immunology, cell biology, oncology, bacteriology, infectious disease, rheumatology, and molecular biology.

With its widespread application, flow cytometry has made remarkable progress. Recently, advancements in the field include technological innovations (i.e., spectral cytometry, mass cytometry, and imaging cytometry) and methodological innovations in acquisition and analysis. These advances have rendered flow cytometry an invaluable tool in studies of the immune system and other areas of cell biology.

This Special Issue will provide insights into the applications of using flow cytometry, covering the latest advances, current challenges, and future trends. It aims to broaden our understanding of basic research flow cytometry findings and potentially lead in translating new applications or new protocols into clinical strategies.

We would highly welcome the submission of original article, review, or communication on flow cytometry in research biology or medical science. Interested authors should consult the instructions using the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/cells/instructions.

Dr. David R. Kaplan
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
