Hi,

 

For flow cytometry I used stained negative control (cell not expressing the surface protein but are stained with antibodies similar to sample) and there are no background noticed for all 3 flurochromes used. I used it to gate against the signals. Like below 10^2 is negative signal, above 10^2 is positive signal. 

 

I thought it should be sufficient. Is isotype control necessary?
