Description
"Cytometry refers to the measurement of physical and/or chemical
characteristics of cells, or, by extension, of other biological particles. Flow
Cytometry is a process in which such measurements are made while the cells or
particles pass, preferably in single file, through the measuring apparatus in a
fluid stream. Flow Sorting extends flow cytometry by using electrical or
mechanical means to divert and collect cells with one or more measured
characteristics falling within a range or ranges of values set by the user."
