An alternative approach has used a monoclonal antibody to semiquantify trihexosylceramide in cultured fibroblasts from Fabry disease patients by use of laser scanning confocal imaging (62, 63): this method allowed the identification of Fabry heterozygotes and showed that ~50% of fibroblasts had trihexosylceramide accumulation.
