I'm attempting to establish a protocol with THP-1 cells stimulated with 1uM PMA for 72 hours (I have also being attempting 48hr) then collecting the cells via scraping and staining them for flow cytometry. However, whenever I collect the cells then try trypan blue counting - I discovered most of the cells to be dead. Visually, they look ok under the microscope before scraping, so I'm wondering if this might be the reason they are dying? (Though I have not previously heard of this before...)
