Flow Cytometry-Definition, Principle, Parts, Steps, Types, Uses


Flow cytometry is a technique that allows the analysis of multiple characteristics of cells or particles in a fluid suspension. It can measure physical properties such as size, shape, and granularity, as well as chemical properties such as the presence and amount of specific molecules on the cell surface or inside the cell. Flow cytometry can also sort cells based on these properties, allowing the isolation of specific subpopulations for further study or application.
