You have monoclonal antibodies directly conjugated to FITC (green) or APC (red) as shown in Table 1. You have every antibody in each color. Draw FACS quadrant diagrams (see previous diagrams) using the available reagents with white blood cell phenotypic data (in frequency) shown from two patients in Table 2. Label each axis of the FACS plots with the appropriate antibody and the fluorochrome used. Make two color data plots and answer the questions A-D on next page. Remember that the plots must add up to 100%. Table 1: Monoclonal antibodies available both in FITC and APC for each of the antibodies listed below.
