  1. Applications of cytometry
    • Visualization of samples on a single cell level
    • Can find a rare cell type among a sample comprised mostly of non-relevant events
    • Sorting of distinct populations within a heterogenous sample
    • Widely used in immunology
  2. How does it work?
    • Sample of cells labeled with antibodies conjugated to fluorochromes
    • Cell suspension is forced into a tiny stream of liquid, so that only one cell enters the machine at a time
    • Each cell, and any antibodies that are bound to it, intercept the laser beam and are excited to a higher energy state
    • The energy is released as a photon of light
    • Attached computer interprets the data and presents a visual display
