Figure 20.23 How flow cytometry data are graphed. LL, cells negative for both x- and /-axes. UR, cells positive for both x- and /-axes. UL, cells positive for /-axis and negative for x-axis. LR, cells positive for x-axis and negative for /-axis. Different CD antibodies are placed on the x- and /-axes.

been taking flu medications for 2 weeks, she felt she was not improving. Her CBC revealed increased white cell count, a moderate anemia, and a normal platelet count.
