Title: Beyond Aggregation: Exploring Platelet Function with Flow Cytometry Analysis

Inherited platelet function defects (PFD) are among the most common inherited bleeding disorders and expose patients to bleeding risks when presented with haemostatic challenges. Currently, light transmission aggregometry is the most widely utilised method to assess platelet function. However, it does not allow for an in-depth phenotypical evaluation of platelet glycoprotein expression and has been shown to have a low sensitivity for mild PFD. In contrast, flow cytometry (FCM) can be applied to assess both glycoprotein expression and the reactivity of platelets to stimuli using platelet activation markers. FCM is also increasingly being used to assess platelet activation in real time, which can provide insights into platelet activation kinetics and aid in the diagnosis of mild PFD.

Attend our FLOW Talks, during lunch and coffee breaks, and get inspired by impactful 15 minutes talks led by experts in the field. You will learn about current and future hot topics in flow cytometry and beyond:

    • The interplay between the immune system and haematological malignancies
    • The future of clinical flow cytometry – from deep insights to clinical standardisation
    • The role of artificial intelligence (AI) in diagnosis
