Using Flow Cytometry in Biomedical Science

By Kate Warde (@girlinthelab) Flow cytometry is a common laser technique scientists use to look at the characteristics of each single cell in a large population of cells. How flow cytometry works In flow cytometry, cells are labeled with fluorescent tags that correspond to a specific target; for instance, if we want to look at protein X on a cell, we add a tag that binds to this protein. When the cells run through the cytometer, they are contained in a liquid that flows in single file so that each…
