Flow Cytometer

Brand: BD Biosciences



Flow cytometry is used to analyse the physical and chemical characteristics of particles/cells in a fluid as it passes through at least one laser. Cell components are fluorescently stained and then excited by the laser to emit light at varying wavelengths. Fluorescent staining coupled with flow cytometry (FCM) is frequently used for the monitoring, quantification and characterization of bacteria in seawater, freshwater, drinking water, wastewater, and industrial bioreactors.
