|Detecting Abnormal Cells in the Cervix
This image of cellular infiltrate in mucous membrane cells of the cervix visualizes a panel of biomarkers indicating abnormal expansion or a growth. The biomarkers detected include CD3 (yellow); CD8 (red); PD1 (pink) and PDL1 (green). The blue color represents the cell nucleus. The intensity of each fluorescent signal can be measured and interpreted as the amount of that particular protein present in the tissue sample. This image indicates the presence of different inflammatory cells and immune regulatory cells present in the cellular infiltrate.
