Validation of Cell based assays in GLP setting

IST quite literally helped “write the book” on cell analysis testing.  They were asked to contribute a chapter of a book titled Validation of Cell-Based Assays in the GLP Setting: A Practical Guide, by authors/editors Uma Prabhakar and Marian Kelley (Publisher John Wiley and Sons, 2008, ISBN 0470028769, 9780470028766).  Chapter 8 of this book entitled “Intracellular cytokine detection by flow cytometry” was authored by IST scientists Julie G. Wilkinson, Carlos L. Aparicio, and Wade E. Bolton.

Readers gain an understanding of the details and the high level considerations of assay qualification for difficult cell-based assays.  The level of optimization described for cell-based assays lends itself to biomarker assay automation which can be used for biomarker qualification and validation studies to the satisfaction of the FDA, EMEA, and other regulatory agencies.   Cell-based assay platforms covered are flow cytometry, intracellular cytokine ICS, immunophenotyping, elispot, IHC, cylex, neutralization bioassays, and endpoint assays.
