Flow cytometry is the primary immunological technique used to analyze multiple parameters on complex cell populations. We present a staining method that identifies major human mononuclear lymphoid and myeloid populations (CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, γδ T cells, B cells, NK cells and monocytes), using only two fluorochromes and a minimal number of cells. Our approach increases the number of markers recordable on most flow cytometers allowing for a deeper and more comprehensive immunophenotyping.
