I am trying to analyse monocytes, lymphocytes and granulocytes by CD45/SSC. I am not sure how to do the gating with openCyto. Attached is an immage of how I'd do it by hand, and what I can get so far with open cyto.
Some cells are not lysed and must be removed - they are low in CD45 and side scatter (they cannot be removed by Forward/Side scater gate). The problem is that immature granulocytes are also low in CD45, but high in side scatter. For now I have a boundary gate to remove the lysed cells, but that also takes a big chunk of immature granulocytes.
Basophils, lymphocytes and monocytes are high in CD45 and low in side scatter, though monocytes have slightly higher side scatter than lymphocytes, but much lower than eosinophils, which have high CD45 and side scatter.
We want to know the proportion of granulocytes including the immature and go on to analyse eosinophils and neutrophils. We are also interested in basophils, lymphocytes and monocytes which we extract in later gates.
What is the best way of going about this with opencyto? Is there way of handling the diagonal between granulocytes and lymphocytes? Will polygons be adjusted per sample?
