Topic: Life Science > Cytometry & Flow Cytometry

Cytometry is a technique used to analyze and quantify the characteristics of individual cells or particles in a heterogeneous population. It involves the measurement of various parameters, such as cell size, shape, granularity, and specific biomarkers. In flow cytometry, the parameters are assessed in a fluid stream. Both techniques are used in various scientific disciplines, including immunology, cancer research, microbiology, and stem cell biology, to advance our understanding of cellular biology and help diagnose and monitor diseases.
