    Antibiotic resistance is a topic that is of growing concern in the field of medicine. Antibiotics act as growth blockers or act as toxins, killing the organism they affect. These biological weapons generate selective pressure leading to the current antibiotic crisis. This selective pressure causes resistant organisms to begin to emerge and over generations antibiotic resistance can develop and be spread among a bacterial population. One of the key factors contributing to antibiotic resistance in bacteria is the ability for some bacteria to form and shield themselves within biofilms. Biofilms are masses of bacteria protected by a polysaccharide/ extracellular DNA matrix, can help prevent the penetration of antibiotics to the cells within and can unknowingly lead to lingering, viable cells that can cause further infections. Biofilms can adhere to surfaces in hospitals and can become resistant to even the harshest disinfectants. In hospitals nosocomial infections can lead to chronic illnesses and can be pointed towards surfaces contaminated with biofilms that resist antibiotics as well as disinfectant

    With the growing appreciation of tissue-resident immunity, studying tissue-specific immune cells contributing to both homeostasis and disease is imperative. Here, we provide a protocol for the isolation of human intrahepatic leukocytes (IHL) maximizing viability, purity, and yield. Our protocol is scalable by tissue weight, allowing for reproducible and efficient IHL liberation suitable for functional characterization, cell isolation, and profiling by flow (or mass) cytometry. Furthermore, we provide a "guide" to determine an expected IHL yield per gram of tissue processed. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Stegmann et al. (2016), Pallett et al. (2017), Easom et al. (2018), Swadling et al. (2020), Pallett et al. (2020), and Zakeri et al. (2022)
