This invaluable reference handbook describes the fundamental principles and procedures underlying the successful isolation of viable, functionally intact hematopoietic and lymphoid cells, and their maintenance as primary cultures. The text provides technical information on the signals and mediators required for the differentiation and growth of these cells, and is designed for laboratory investigators with limited practical experience in cell culture. Chapters discuss dendritic cells, T and B lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages, NK and LAK cells, mast cells and basophils, hematopoietic differentiation of embryonal stem cells, and the culturing of murine thymic explants. Each chapter has been written by experts who have practical experience of the techniques discussed to provide tips for avoiding common pitfalls, and sharing insight into the fundamental questions in cell biology and immunology addressed using each cell culture model.

From Our Editors

Cell study is an invaluable part of scientific research. Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Cell Culture is a collection of writings that examines the technical information required to understand the differences and growth patterns of these cells. It focuses on such topics as dendritic cells, T and B lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages, mast cells and basophils. It includes a series of figures and line diagrams that reinforce the most important points of the text and make this the perfect reference guide for all laboratory investigators.

Editorial Reviews

"The book would be of value to anyone who wishes to grow differentiated hematopoietic and lymphoid cells in culture...This is a useful, practical guide, is reasonably priced, and would be a valuable book to have on a laboratory bookshelf or in a library reference collection of techniques."
