Flow cytometry is an indispensible tool in immunology, cell biology, molecular biology, and clinical diagnostics. Originally developed to count and analyze living cells in motion, flow cytometry is currently used in various research and clinical protocols, including the diagnoses of immune disorders, hematologic cancers, and other diseases.
Multicolor flow cytometry can be used to precisely detect, monitor, and measure multiple sample parameters simultaneously in live single-cell suspensions at a rate of thousands of cells per second. Modern instruments are designed for high-content analysis, with improved quantum efficiency of light detection resulting in a substantial increase in sensitivity.
