FACSCalibur Flow Cytometry


Flow cytometry is a laser- or impedance-based, biophysical technology employed in cell counting, cell sorting, biomarker detection and protein engineering, by suspending cells in a stream of fluid and passing them through an electronic detection apparatus. A flow cytometer allows simultaneous multiparametric analysis of the physical and chemical characteristics of up to thousands of particles per second.

Applications and Uses

Flow cytometry is widely used in biological basic research and 

clinical applications, and has played an important role in the field

of immunology, genetics, hematology, oncology, botany. As a 

high-end development of life science research and diagnostic

laboratory instruments, flow cytometry provides an ideal testing

and analysis method for the understanding of cells and life 

activities, the mechanism of disease and drug development,

and the interaction between nanomaterials and cells.
