Abstract

Peritoneal macrophages are invaluable for gaining an understanding of innate immune responses due to their physiological relevance. These macrophages can be harvested from the peritoneum to give a resident population or can be elicited through the use of thioglycollate. This chapter describes how to collect each type of macrophage.
