Validation of a flow cytometric assay detecting in vitro basophil
activation for the diagnosis of muscle relaxant allergy.
(2008), the epithelium of the spermatheca of stingless bee Melipona quadrifasciata anthidioides (Hymenoptera, Apidae) has a single layered epithelium and apical basophil
indicating a secretory function.
The pars intermedia of the hypophysis in Bactrian camel was narrow situated between the pars distalis and the pars nervosa, approximately 730 um in thickness, and composed of basophil
cells and many crevices with different sizes.
After contact with an allergen, mast cells and basophiles
release chemical mediators.

A comparison of GSTM1 null gene polymorphism in the group of children with leukopenia also found to be significantly decreased WBC (p = 0.0001), neutrophil (p = 0.0001), basophil
(p = 0.0449), lymphocyte (p = 0.0001), and monocyte (p = 0.0014) counts (Table 4).
Applying a joint analysis of the different methods mentioned above, the algorithm performs the identification of the cells, classifying them in the 5 different populations (neutrophils, basophils
, monocytes, eosinophils, and lymphocytes) effectively having a good performance with very similar cell populations, as evidenced in Figure 2(f).
Despite these findings, the role of ASST and basophil
activation test (BAT) positivity seems to be controversial.
A passive serum basophil
histamine release assay is a marker for cyclosporine-responslveness in patients with chronic spontaneous urticaria.
The innate immune system components include granulocytes or polymorph nuclear leukocytes, the group to which neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils
, macrophages/monocytes, and natural killer cells (NK cells).
They also offer a selection of unique, high-quality assays for routine use such as the BUHLMANN Flow CAST[R] product group for Basophil
Activation Testing, the BUHLMANN GanglioCombi[TM] products, and a variety of Melatonin Assays.
However, a complex reciprocal interaction was noted between endotoxin and smoking in the relationship to eosinophil and basophil
counts (Table 3).
