Flow Cytometry handbook (free)

Flow cytometry is a laser-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 by an electronic detection apparatus. It allows simultaneous multiparametric analysis of the physical and chemical characteristics of up to thousands of particles per second.

Flow cytometry is routinely used in the diagnosis of health disorders, especially blood cancers, but has many other applications in basic research, clinical practice and clinical trials.

AbD Serotec are offering a free e-book. The book contains an overview of the principles of light and flow cytometry, basic data analysis and common protocols. It is perfect for students or inexperienced users of this powerful application.
