There are many ways to purify these cells. The method you choose depends
on the amount you need, the purity you need and the amount of money you
have. These techniques are based on either positive or negative
selection. They usually utilize specific Abs which are then bound to a
substrate that removes these cells.
Flow cytometric sorting
