Flow cytometry is a powerful tool for cell quantitation and analysis across a wide range of clinical and research applications. Most commonly used in the fields of immunology and haematology, recent improvements in instrument automation and throughput mean that the technique is now emerging as an increasingly attractive high-throughput screening (HTS) platform in drug discovery too.
Flow cytometry is a widely-used analytical method that uses light to count and characterise heterogeneous cell populations. Highly valued for its ability to measure multiple parameters simultaneously, the technique enables vast amounts of data on large, phenotypically diverse cell populations to be rapidly collected. Coupled with the fact that it is a non-destructive method that can be performed on live cells allowing further processing and analysis, it has become well-established as an important tool for both investigatory and routine analysis across a wide range of applications.
