On C# - How to capture the Serial Port received data to Global Variable?

Hi Guys.
I've using serialPort and written a small method to read the SerialPort. The SerialPort being read!  I need to separate the string the get Particles Counters. The devices send the string in this format: ?01,00000,00000,00000,n/a,n/a I try to capture the string to separate in the commas, but unfortunately, so capture the end of the string or "n/a". How to capture the entire string to global variable and treat this variable in another method?
Thanks in advance
My method:
private void serialPort1_DataReceived(object sender,System.IO.Ports.SerialDataReceivedEventArgs e)
    this.Invoke(new EventHandler(DisplayText));

private void DisplayText(object sender,EventArgs e)

In serialPort1_DataReceived function you can implement like:

void loop(){
  if(Serial.available() > 0){
    int i = 0;
    unsigned char data = 0;
     while(Serial.available() > 0){
       data = Serial.read();
       if(i < buffersize){
        buffer[i] = data; //put all data into buffer until if fills
     for(int j = 0; j < i; j++){
       Serial.print(buffer[j]); //print buffer characters
