Flow cytometry is a laser based, bio-physical technology that involves suspending of cells in a thermodynamic stream of fluid and passing them by an electronic detection apparatus. This technology is employed in applications such as cell counting, sorting of cells, biomarker detection and protein engineering and it allows simultaneous multi-parametric analysis of the physical and/or chemical characteristics of up to thousands of particles per second. Flow cytometry has many applications in clinical and basic research.
Beckman Coulter’s website has these on-line training courses, with the five basic components of flow cytometry theory.
