An integrated microfluidic immunophenotyping platform is developed by Jianping Fu, Katsuo Kurabayashi, and co-workers on page 965 for rapid and efficient isolation, enrichment, stimulation and functional immunophenotyping of subpopulations of immune cells. Such an innovative tool will allow comprehensive and systems-level immunomonitoring to define and characterize the “immune status” of healthy individuals and patients, critical for clinical interventions and managements of patients with immune system disorders.
